Last Week At Ibaraki:

The last week was very sad because we knew that are time at Ibaraki was coming to a close. This week was the busiest week of the four weeks here.  The week started off like any other with class and chapel. Near the middle of the week is where we kicked it into over drive.
The first thing that we did was go to the Junior High on campus ad talk with 7th, 8th, and 9th graders. One of the most beautiful things that I heard was when the 9th graders sang to us, “May the Lord bless you and Keep you” in Japanese.
The next morning we made Bamboo Crafts which was a lot of fun. I man from the town came in and taught us about bamboo and showed us how to make bamboo whistles.imageimage
Are final activity with the IC buddies was going to Ryujin Suspension bridge and we also stopped to make “Mochi” which is rice cakes. imageimageimageWhile there Chris, Jala and Jon tried “Nato” which is fermented beans and tastes really nasty but most Japanese like it.
The last things that we did was got are certificate of Completion and farewell party.
