We got lost this week. A lot.
Monday we took the 6am train up to Asahikawa and when we got there we realized we left our phone in Ebetsu. First mistake. We had Zone Activity that day at the Suehiro church so we jumped on a bus that we thought would take us there, got off at what we thought was the right stop and walked in what we thought was the right direction forrrreverrrrrrr. We were wrong in every possible way. With no map, no address and no phone we were pretty かわいそう。we talked to sooo many people and no one could help us. We finally found a phone booth but only had one coin. So I called Hymas 長老。He gave us the address to the church but we ran out of time before he could give us any directions. Lay Shimai just looked at me and said "start praying Hymas comes to the rescue." We started walking again foreverrrrrr and right as we were about to turn down the totally wrong road and be lost forever who would come flying down the street but Hymas and Fukuda Choro to the rescue. Miracles are real people!! Hahaha so blessed.
Wednesday we went to the Hokkaido museum with an investigator except Lay Shimai and I got lost AGAIN. this time we decided to take a "bike path" through the woods, hoping it would get us to the museum. Yeah it wasn't a bike path. We started riding down this dirt path which turned to no path which turned to us flying through a bamboo forest which led to a GIANT drop off which we somehow managed to carry our bikes down, across the river and then back up the other side. All in the rain. But hey the museum was cool!
Thursday after teaching eikaiwa in Iwamizawa we jumped on a train back to Ebetsu. Except the train didn't stop in Ebetsu. Or anywhere near Ebetsu. So we got to take a unexpected field trip to downtown Sapporo! Good times.
This week is transfer week!! It's been a crazy 12 weeks with Lay Shimai. We've worked ourselves nearly to death haha but we've seen a lot of miracles. "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith" Lay Shimai and I definitely kept the faith the past 12 weeks and we've seen so many miracles because of it. The miracles don't come till after the trial of your faith but I know for sure that they come. Crazy to think I've only got 18 weeks left.
