Adullam in Kobe

This is the church group I have been worshiping with here in Kobe. A very tight-knit group, filled with love and a desire to worship the Lord with all their hearts.


Sweet Reunion


Within a week of moving to Kobe, I was able to meet up with one of my close friends from Okinawa. Robby and his lovely wife Rika were on their way back to Okinawa from Ehime. They flew out of Kobe Airport, so Yumi and I decided to meet them at Sannomiya and have lunch together. It was a short visit, and made me want to have Rob nearer to me here, but I was so blessed by God's grace. I will continue to pray for happiness and blessings upon the Wunderliches.

New Apartment

Well, it's been a long time since I have put anything up here. Finally, I have regular Internet access and a bit of time (for the next day, then I start work), so I suppose I can share a bit of what is happening. It has been 6 weeks since I moved to Kobe now. Wow! It is HOT here... hotter than Okinawa, in the summer, even! But I think things will start to cool down a little in September, and will be comfortably warm come October. Can't wait! Anyways, here's a shot of my new apartment building. It's really small -- 6 suites in all -- and is situated next to the highest-ranked (academically) high school in all of Japan. No, I will not be working there come September -- my school's a few kilometers down the road and a steep bus ride up the mountain from where I live. Anyways, this apartment is temporary housing for me -- I am hoping to move into something a little more comfortable (fit for two, for sure) in the spring.
