Well I decided after 5 years in country it it time to learn Japanese. Originally when we landed on Okinawa we had all intentions of learning Japanese. After listening to the radio for 10 minutes our first few days here we decided that English and little bit of German were just fine, thank you very much.
In Taiwan I was semi convicted of my language laziness when visiting to set up our missions trip this summer so I began praying about learning Japanese. Then God brought a number of other things my way to confirm he wanted me to learn Japanese.
On Thursday I began working on learning Japanese. Just today our one of our new neighbors was outside playing soccer so I decided to join him. His name is Takishi and we are going to meet once a week to teach each other our native tongues. Should be exciting
