Right under the tent and right under the stars. We are having the sessions outside under the cool weather. The stars are out and the night is nice, a great way to study the Word. Yoshua is teaching the first session and he did a great job. We are looking forward to some great teachings. Thank you everyone.
It is not camping with a campfire! Having a big bonfire is part of the great experience of having fun camping. So as the gang found all the wood, it was our part to make sure that it burned well. Chilling next to the beach, eating marshmallows, ahhhhh, the best!
It is not easy feeding 40 people outdoors, but the team makes it happen. We ate miso soup and rice this morning, Okinawan style. Thanks to Yoshua’s grandmas recipe we had our miso soup with Daikon and spam, that is right spam! It tastes delicious in miso soup. Thanks Joel, we are eating good.
Literally, we hiked to the top of the mountain. We were sweaty but we made it! It was a lot of fun. These guys can climb, they were really pumping it up the mountain. At the top it was literally breathtaking! So beautiful! Well, it is time to come down the mountain, time for lunch!
We took over the beach! That is ok because no one else is here, we have the whole beach to ourselves. Just us, the fish, stars and the beautiful surf. We are finding a lot of beautiful shells and sea glass! Blue sea glass is rare and red sea glass is even rarer, we have not found red, but we have found a lot of blue and it is beautiful.
We arrived safely on Tonaki Island and now it is time to set up the tents. This is where we get to see who sets up first, it is usually the girls, they just have the knack at setting things up fast. God totally blessed us with great weather and smooth sailing. The boat ride is usually rocky, but no problems at all. It was a great trip. We are having fun
Everyone did a great job of setting up the campground. You could not ask for better weather or a better camp site, right next to the water. So if you get hot, just go and take a dip. There is nothing like falling asleep to the cool sound of the ocean. Beats city life!

There you go, they are official! You have finally arrived when you get your picture at the Nago Pineapple Park on e3missions. It was a blessing having Rob’s family with us here in Okinawa, and it was a bummer saying goodbye. I know that Rob was so blessed, he had a blessed time showing them all around, spending quality time together.
