    I just arrived in Osaka, Japan with a mission team from my church. Anyone who's curious about why we are here can check out our blog here. Anyone who has any secular questions can ask them here.

    Thanks!

    I will answer them as best I can. If it is anything I can answer now, or that I can look into, you don't have to wait until then. I'm trying to check the internet a couple times a day, mostly for replies to the blog and this thread.

    If you need to PM me, my box is about full, hopefully I'll try to make room soon.

    Don't be jealous :)

    Um, given the "no religious discussion" rule here, is this topic allowed?

    It's a recruitment mission not a help the less fortunate one.

    Seems like a gray area to me. The rules are in place to prevent religious flamewars. Posting about an exciting trip to Japan seems reasonable in GD, as is casual mention of its circumstances. I'm guessing it will be tolerated as long as the discussion is about "trip to Japan, which happens to involve a religious organization" and not "religious nature of trip to Japan." If it dips in that direction though, I'm sure the mods will lock it tighter than a-- uh... something that gets locked really tight.

    Yes, I didn't realize that it might not be tolerated to even mention a trip. It's part of the reason I posted a link to our blog and didn't post missions related things here. I wouldn't have mentioned it if the trip wasn't to Japan. I figured peope who want to read about a mission trip will follow the link, and people who might just be interested in my experiences in Japan could post things here. Perhaps my assumptions were off base.

    Keep the religious part to a minimum or say something like "If you'd like to know more about *why* I'm in Japan, click this link." Talk about the experiences, sights, and sounds in the thread. No harm, no foul.

    And don't listen to the naysayers.

    Hope your mission trip is successful! I wish I could say more but because of the whole "no religion on the boards" deal and all....

    Anyways, I hope all goes well! :D
