Here's a picture of Eder Diaz sporting his new hairdo. Totally thought it was fake but I was wrong. Looks good Eder. Please keep Eder and Amanda Diaz in your prayers as they are expecting their first child later in the year. The Diaz couple are serving as missionaries up in the northern area of Okinawa with CC Nago with Pastor Tim and family.

It has been hot around the Tokyo metropolitan with the weather reaching to 33C (90'F) with the humidity to the same percentage. God gave us a nice break from the heat with cool weather. Last night I slept with a blanket. Crazy in this time of July, thank you God.

Today at the morning devotional breakfast Pastor Santou shared. Pastor Santou stepped out of his comfort zone and shared in English. It is not easy speaking a second language especially when you sharing out of Gods Word. But it was great to hear. Good job Pastor Santou.
Today was a national holiday dedicated to having a fun time at the beach. A group decided to go down to Kamakura to surf the waves. Kamakura is a very old town dating back to the time of the Samurais but now has adopted the surfing culture. I have never seen so many surfers here in Japan. It was special to surf the waves while Mt.Fuji stood in the background.

One of the moms from the daycare blessed Rich with free tickets to the Seibu Lions vs Rakuten Eagles. Japanese baseball games are different from America's favorite pastime. Each team's fans are allowed to take turns to root and cheer for their team. You wouldn't see that ever between a Dodgers vs Giants game. Crazy!

Tatsuhiko invited many of the high school and college age people over to his house to eat his Mom's homemade Karage (Fried Chicken). The fellowship was good along with the countless pieces of fried chicken. It doesn't get any better than that.

Calvary West Tokyo hosts a park service every first Sunday of July. Also many other Calvaries got together to joins (CC Fuchu, CC Tokorozawa). It was a really great time in joining church services together and downing the afternoon fellowshipping and playing sports. It was supposed to rain all day but God held back the rain until later afternoon. God is good!
After the wedding, those who are staying at the Bible College went out for Sushi. It was a blessing because we had Takako (Front Left) with us. Takako recently came back from Israel. While Natsuki (back Right) came up from Okinawa. Great time.
