Oops, thank you!! I changed it :) That would be pretty crazy, huh!

*bump!* We are now meeting on Sunday afternoons from 2:30 to 4:10 pm, so I edited the original post to include the new time ^_^

Also, we'll be having a kid-friendly Easter get-together in the park next to the Pure Center (where we meet for church) next Sun, 4/20 at 12:30 :) Bring your "obento" and enjoy lunch with us! Afterward, we'll have an Easter egg hunt and pinata for kids at 1:00 and a special Easter service after that starting at 2:30 pm. Hope to see you there! Please just send me a quick RSVP if any kids will be coming with you so we can have enough party prizes for everyone :)

Aww, too bad! The classes other than the intermediate one I mentioned can be be worked into your own schedule since they're more like private/small group lessons, but I'm not sure whether there are any volunteers in your area to teach the class. I'd be happy to ask my Japanese teacher if you're interested, though!

Hello! I just wanted to forward this info about Japanese classes from my Japanese teacher :) The intermediate level sounds like it'll be a great fit for people studying for JLPT Level N2 or so!

Ya, that would be a problem then  :-P I know Chris won't be here next weekend (Nov 19-20), so maybe we can plan for the end of Nov or sometime in Dec. Also, would you be up for ordering cards if we can get enough people to commit this time?

Ryuo Station is about a 25 minute walk from our house (we live in the Shikishima area of Kai), so I think usually someone (Nick? Amanda?) picks up people from the train station on their way up here. Otherwise, someone might be able to get you from your house. Where do you live?

We only ever get awesome pizzas  :-D So are we thinking the 13th then? Or a different date?

The 6th and 13th are best for Chris and me  :-D We'll probably be ordering pizza too, so you may want to bring pizza money (if you want some) and any magic decks you might want to play!

Chris and I are good for it too  :-D And of course, we can have it at our place as usual!

Hi, everyone! I'm reposting this info for anyone who might be interested in checking out New Life International Church in Kofu  :-D Here ya go!

New Life International Church is a non-denominational Christian church full of warm, welcoming people from all around the world. The church service is now being held on Sunday afternoons from 2:30 to 4:10 pm in the Danjokyoudousankakusuishinjourei Center Pure Sougou 山梨県出先機関男女共同参画推進センターぴゅあ総合  (ya, the name is ridiculously long! We just call in Danjo Center or Pure for short  :-P We've been looking for a permanent church building, but that's been our place of residence in the meantime!) Services are in English with a Japanese translator. Feel free to come sometime! Newcomers are always welcome  :-) If you don't have a car, pick up is available every week at the nearby Sakaori Station around 2:15 pm.

Here is the map:

And the church website, too!

And even their Facebook page! (under New Life Church Kofu)

Also, we have an in-home Bible study in Isawa every Wednesday from 5:45 to 7:30 pm and weekend get-together outings once a month. If you have any questions or want more info, feel free to post it on here, send me a PM, or email me at :-D Hope to see you there!

Gah, sorry guys! I just called my friend and apparently I was confused about the time--the event doesn't finish until 4:30  :oops: Since the 28th is good for everyone else though, I can just skip out on the draft this time...I'm really sorry about that!

The best dates for me are the 22nd, 24th, 26th, 29th, and 31st...I'll be free til about 5pm on the 23rd, 27th, and 30th, and I have lunch/afternoon plans on the 28th. Chris should be free any of those dates though  :-)

Ok no prob! See you guys next week then  :-D

So no magic for today, I take it?

Yes, that's the plan! See you guys tonight  :-)


Yep, we're good!

Yep, we're on for today! See you guys tonight!

For me, 22 and 29 are preferable, 28 is a no, and 21 is possible!

I'm still kinda confused about our group, cuz the announcements were saying that blackout would be 18:20-22:00 yesterday, but then it was canceled. Would they do the same time 2 days in a row? Hmm...But anyways, I suppose we shouldn't have it at our house in case there actually is a blackout. Which means Chris and I won't be doing any more magic til after get back on 4/8  :cry: Also, blackout at my school supposedly is 12:20-4:00, so I might be losing internet here soon if it actually happens.
