We Have a House

In a major answer to prayers, we're excited to report that we have a house waiting for us near the language center and where our children will be attending school in Japan. The house has three small bedrooms, enough to accommodate all of us, single bathroom, large kitchen area with full-size stove, and all for a reasonable price. The kids are particularly looking forward to living "upstairs". What's more is it has a dryer for laundry; something very few Japanese homes have believe it or not. Perhaps the best thing about this house is the fact that they don't require anything more than a one-month deposit. Most Japanese residence require front-money totaling several thousand non-refundable dollars. We'll post more photos in the June newsletter. Thanks to our team leaders Phil and Kim for doing the foot work to find it!
