I came back up to Hume and was greeted by a fresh layer of snow and freezing temperatures, then closely followed by much warm welcoming from many friends.
It's good to be back.

LAX

I'm back in CA again. I think that I just had the worst airplane food
that I've ever had with the worst cabin crew. I'm not a big fan of
United Airlines today.
The warm southern California sun feels great!

At Narita airport in Tokyo

I just got off the plane in Tokyo, and am at the Narita Airport with a three hour layover waiting for my next flight to Los Angeles.

I will arrive at 11:11am at LAX, then join the rest of the team when they arrive, via Seoul, Korea, at 11:30am.


Somebody from Hume will be picking us up for the 6 hour drive back to the mountain.

Heading North



We headed toward the north end of the island to a military resort to spend our last day here just relaxing. The weather was beautiful. We visited a snake show, a pineapple farm/giftshop, and hiked up a water fall then drove to the resort. I think we got here just in time. The weather turned nasty, now it's rainy and windy.

Some Photos

Does anybody need anything from Japan?

While I'm over here.
I guess it doesn't hurt to ask.

Okinawa

I made it safely to Okinawa. We are on an island starting camp today.
But I can't keep any updates. I'll catch up when I get back to the
military base.

Prayer?

A-lo-ha is part of our community,
Raining down from sun and sea,
Filling me with energy.
We join hands to form a world of Harmony
starting with you and me.
AMEN



So...
before every meal here at camp, the YMCA staff comes up and leads us in this song/prayer. It's posted on the walls, and we got in a little bit of trouble for covering part of it up with our set. I think it's supposed to be a prayer, but who are we praying to? And, what does it have to do with the Young Men's Christian Association?

It's the tune of:
"I may never march in the infantry,
ride in the calvary,
shoot the artillery.
I may never soar o're the enemy,
but I'm in the Lord's army.
Yes, Sir!"

Don't bother looking for me.

Hawaii Day 6, Pictures


It's been a long two days with almost no break.
So, I spent an hour just sitting on the beach in front of the camp.
It's kind of like walking out to the corner of the cove at Hume Lake, with your back to the chaos of camp, and just sitting and watching the still and quiet show that God puts on every second of the day.

I need these moments.

I'm glad that they can be found any where and every where in the world.
Sometimes they are obvious.
Sometimes they are not.
Either way, we still just have to sit, wait, and listen.

I want to live with my eyes open.
