The Storm Has Passed!

I want to thank all those who have prayed for Japan. Typhoon Hagibis has passed, but not without severe damage. As of now, about 50 people have lost their lives in the storm, and some people are still missing. Please pray for the comfort of those who lost their loved ones and their homes. Please pray that God would work in the hearts of His people.

Prayer Request for the People of Japan

A big typhoon is coming.

This typhoon, Japan’s nineteenth typhoon of the year, is predicted to hit the eastern part (most of Honshu) of Japan sometime on the 12th, Sat. or 13th, Sun. The typhoons that have previously come have caused enough trouble already: landslides, houses losing their roofs, etc. The speed of this new typhoon is 50 meters per second. This typhoon has the same strength as the typhoon that caused 1,200 casualties a couple of years ago. Please pray for Japan, especially for God’s people, that the damage won’t be too severe and that there won’t be too many casualties. Please pray that God will use this typhoon to make His people rethink their ways and come back to God and ask for His forgiveness. The salvation of God’s elect is the most important thing. Since all is in God’s hands, it’s not really something to worry about, but I’ll really appreciate your prayers.

The Battles of The Two Brothers

94658

“Alright my men, the enemy has arrived! The time of the battle has come!” yelled Grand Admiral Swanson. “Prepare my ships for battle!”

Meanwhile…

“Hoist the colors! Prepare for action! To action stations, all of you, and nuts to those who dilly-dally around!” shouted Commodore J. M. Swanson.

“Is your ship on… I-12?” yelled the Grand Admiral on the radio transmitter to his enemy’s leader.

“MISSED!!” the Commodore sneered back. “Now it’s my turn… is your ship on… W-89?”

“… What on earth are you talking about?!” shouted Grand Admiral Swanson. “There is NO W-89!!!”

“Oh… sorry, let me try again. Is your ship on… E-5?”

Admiral Swanson stared blankly at his side of the game board. “But… how… YES, HIT!!”

About an hour later, the Commodore smiled at his victory. Grand Admiral Swanson’s whole fleet had sunk.

“‘Twas a good game and a really close battle!” said I, shaking my brother’s hand. “Maybe you can win next time! Well played, buddy!”

Thus ended the Battleship game.

othello

A few minutes later, my brother and I played a game called Othello, also known as Reversi.

“Well, well!” I thought to myself. “It looks like another winning game! He, he, he!”

It would probably have been, if Mom hadn’t crept towards bro and gave him a hint!

Every move counts, and that one move of bro’s changed the outcome.

This time, he was the winner!

Well done! Well done!

The next day, Mom and I played Othello, and…

Mom won!

And I lost two Othello games in a row…

To cry or not to cry… that is the question… WAH-HAH-HAH!! 😭

I am now learning how to play chess from Mr. Lee Duigon, author of my favorite Christian book series, the Bell Mountain series, and I hope to be able to play chess sometime in the near future. With Mr. Duigon’s help, I want to add chess to my game repertoire!

A Day at the Dentist

Monday…

Today I had to go to the big Dental College Hospital in Fukuoka City to have a lump in my lower gum checked out.

We prayed to God that it will not turn out to be a serious problem.

And He answered our prayers!! I had an X-ray, and the doctor (who extracted all four of my wisdom teeth last year) checked the lump out and she said that it was only bone.

Phew! Nothing serious…
