Tuesday, the Ogawas cooked lunch at UpTen for the students. The meal was yakisoba, a fried noodle dish. Students who did not have afternoon classes stayed around to chat with us. We played frisbee on campus that afternoon.
Tuesday evening, our friends threw us a farewell party. Everyone brought a dish to share.
I thought these were desserts. I thought very wrong. The balls on the left that I thought were cinnamon/glaze donuts were actually fried octopus balls with brown sauce and mayonnaise. The things on the right that I thought were pies were actually like potato-egg Spanish tortillas...
The students gave us farewell gifts: Japanese teacups.
Mr. Yeager and Joe did a skit about Zaccheus...
...which included morning exercises...
...and a close shave with a butter knife as he "got ready" to see Jesus.
Here is a group photo of all of our new friends at the farewell party:
Late Tuesday night, we found ourselves at the Karaoke Castle with a group of students. As you can see, we had a lot of fun singing with them!
Wednesday is our last day. We had lunch in the cafeteria with the students, played a last game of frisbee, and the girls came over for Girls Night in the evening.
This is my last post before traveling back. Please pray for our safety.
