First Japan Email
Posted below is a copy of my first Japan mass email. I know I forgot people in this email, so I wanted to post it here also. If you regularly read this blog and would like to recieve email updates, please reply with an email address. I would love to litter your inbox with long, syrupy letters full of my Asian Exploits.

After a lot of thinking, a lot of working at HyVee, and a lot of paperwork, I am going to Japan. I still need to get my visa, but I plan to shove off around August 25. I will be teaching junior high and high school English in Shimonoseki for two years. I will be living in an apartment provided by Baiko Gakuin University, the school I will be teaching at. Here is my address and phone number. Please bug me. Or at least mail me something or call me so I know this address is correct.

Shimonoseki, Japan (zip code is 751-0827)
telephone: 0832-22-4506

Please pray for me as I go into a job I have no experience in. I didn't really intend to go into English teaching, but I have always wanted to live in another country, and many of you know I love Asian culture! All that to say... I am excited and nervous. Keep me in your thoughts.
