I arrived in Nagoya on Tuesday evening after a very very long plane ride. When I landed I was greeted by two of the women from the Youth Center. They took me out to eat at a Tofu restaurant, where we met up with the other missionary from England. I have never had so much tofu in my life! It was DELICIOUS.
The past few days I have had a lot of free time because they were letting me adjust to the time change (and being in Japan). In that free time I was able to explore my neighborhood and the city a bit. This a very huge city. On Friday I was able to help out with two of the Center's English classes. We sang "The Wheels on the Bus" and "Pat a Cake, Pat a Cake." It was awesome! The children are just adorable. This coming week I will be visiting all of the over classes and should have a better idea what my weekly schedule will look like.
I went to church for the first time this morning. It was all in Japanese so I didn't understand a word but I did recognize a few hymns. Afterwards we all had lunch together. The whole morning was a community effort, from getting the hall ready for the service to cleaning all of the dishes after lunch. Everyone had a part to play including myself. It was great!
Well that is all from Nagoya for now.
