A Week of Miracles

We came to Japan with International Drivers Licenses but are legally required to get Japanese licenses within a couple of months, if staying for an extended time.  We had been putting off getting them because we understood it was very hard and very expensive.  After gathering up all of our legal papers and previous licenses we made a couple of trips to the DMV testing center about fifty minutes away from our home in another town.  We found the testing and processing people to be very helpful, friendly, and kind.  We are so blessed to be able to say we got our drivers licenses.  Now we can focus on other things that need to be done, like learning Japanese. 
The test range.

The miracle licenses. 
We have also met a lot of wonderful new friends.  Many have started coming to church and to our dance exercise classes.  The members and our friends seem to love the exercise class and say they want to come every week.   We had thirty people come to the class this past week.  People in their twenties, thirties, forties, and fifties have been coming.  It makes this sixty-five year old instructor feel pretty good.  We get a chance to share a short gospel message at the end which they also seem to enjoy.  We love sharing these good things.
