Last night we were blessed to have Murray Uomoto from Japan at our church for a fellowship meal and talk. We all enjoyed hearing from him, but here is Emelie's own unique take on the evening....
Tonight, we went to hear a missionary from Japan speak. Always the photographer, here is my documentation through photos.
|And to start of my photos....SQUID JERKY!! I was willing to taste |
it (but it was about three years old). I was the only one.
|The back of the squid packaging. Ted insists that one package will be enough!|
|Japanese letters and the sounds they make |
at a glance. Dig the pictures. Awesome.
|A close-up of my favorite little Japanese character thing. |
While we uncreative Americans would pick something like "open" to represent O,
the Japanese card thing picked a monster-ish creature! I'm honestly
not making fun of the monster I luv it :)!
|Here is John Calvin as we know him....|
|...and John Calvin in Japanese!|
|The inside of John Calvin in Japanese|
|You know you're a book freak when you get excited |
that there's less than 2000 copies of this book in
the world and you have one of them :D. It's in
Japanese. I couldn't read it. I didn't care.
|A picture of a poster of the most famous tenor in Japan. |
I took a picture, mainly for posterity. _Inigo Montoya: I do not
think that word means what you think it means_.
|More English/Japanese translations|
|It was so weird, because the English books |
opened the way books do. Japanese books
opened backwards. So wild.
|I even learned cool things about America. This marker |
shows the first recordings of Christianity in America. I'm
gonna research that later, I know I will.

It's actually really easy, because it sounds just like it looks.
