Assigned to Kengun Lutheran Church; and English Service at Kumamoto Lutheran Church, KumamotoEnglish Bible study
At English Service (choose to add this to church assignment)
It has been both a significant time of learning, and a time of seeing that there is so much more to learn. Such is life that just when you begin to understand things you realize that you have a lot more to understand. I'm enjoying the language study, but also enjoying learning more about Japanese culture and life.

Assigned to Church Assignment, KumamotoAttend church every Sunday morning. J-3s are involved in their assigned churches in different ways and have different responsibilities. For example, some lead Bible studies, lead a special English service, and become involved with youth groups and their activities.
I'm so thankful for Ohkayama church! They had a lot going on for Christmas, and they kept me busy and really involved. Between being Santa Claus for the kindergarten at the church, playing guitar for the Teen's Club Christmas party, singing in the Hallelujah Chorus and attending other services and parties, I felt very welcome and at home.
