Yokoso Fukushima!

Hello again!!

How are all y’all doing?  I’m sorry it’s been so long since I’ve been on here. In between volunteering at the Camp Zama Vet clinic and school, I haven’t been on my computer near as much and I haven’t taken so many pictures here recently either. So sorry!!! But I will show you what pictures I do have.

So last week, I went to Fukushima to see my boyfriend.

So anyways, last week, on the 15th, I left Yokohama station at 11:00 pm and I began the 6 hour bus ride to Fukushima prefecture…NOT Fukushima City. I slept the entire way, waking up about 20 minutes from Fukushima station.

Once I got there, we went and got some breakfast and then we went sightseeing. After driving around for a while, we stopped and got some lunch. We stopped at a place called “Gusto”. It was really good!

I’m not sure if Hiro was posing or if I caught him off guard.

Hiro ordered this tasty fruit and yogurt dessert.

The mountains up there were gorgeous!! It was a warm sunny day and there was snow on the mountains making it picture-perfect. :)

This is at Hanamiyama.

This lady in the picture is one that we met while walking up one of the roads going up the mountain. She walked up the road with us a bit pointing different things out.

I think Hiro told me that this is a plum tree.

Then after talking for a few minutes, this lady asked if we would like for her to get our picture together.

The sun shining off of the mountains was SO pretty!!

One of the parks we went to had this cute little creek running through it.

Sorry my reflection was in the glass.

This is St. Anne’s Wedding Chapel.

Later that night, after eating at an Italian restaurant (which was delicious!!), we went bowling. I was able to snap a couple pictures of Hiro while we were at the bowling alley.

After this, we went and waited for my bus.

Although this wasn’t in Fukushima, I thought it was worth sharing. We saw this on Sunday on our way to Ibaraki for church.

Funny, isn’t it? :)

Oh!! I also have some AWESOME information!!! How many of y’all from Dayton (ALC to be specific) remember Brother J.J. Bourn? Guess what?!?!?!? He is going to be coming to Japan ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!!!!! We are ALL SO happy to be able to see him again. Actually, Brother Bourn prophesied to my parents that we “would have your answer in 45 days of less.” My parents had been trying to decide whether we needed to stay in Ohio and retire there or for my dad to stay in the military. 45 days later, we (my parents) signed the contract on a house there in Ohio. To be more specific, the house was on Eagle Watch Way in Huber Heights, Ohio. Anyway, because of that, we stayed in Ohio for 8 more years, which in turn led to us having my grandparents come visit us in June, and that’s when my dad’s truck broke down. Because of that, we had to leave the truck in Amish Country. When my parents went back to pick the truck up, they met with Sister Lucas. All of that led up to us coming back to Japan!! How AMAZING is that?!?!?!? It’s awesome!! Anyway, so Brother Bourn is going to be here IN JAPAN and is going to be in some special services with several of the churches here on mainland Japan (it will be held at Haijima church and I know the Ibaraki church and Tokyo Worship Tabernacle churches are invited). I am SO excited about seeing Brother Bourn again! I can’t wait!!!

Okay, that’s all the new pictures that I have for now and all of the new information. I’ll try to get some more over these next couple weeks, especially while Brother Bourn is here.

God bless you all!
