I am privileged to live in Kuma County in Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan. It’s my favorite place on Earth. I’ve been here for more than a decade and I’m a permanent resident. I plan to live the rest of my life here. I have a wife and son, both of whom I can’t imagine life without. I’m an assistant English teacher at all the public schools (K-9) in two small, rural towns, Sagara and Itsuki, and teach English out of my home at night to over 50 students. Living in rural Japan has profoundly changed me in many ways as I have struggled to throw off the weight of an Evangelical upbringing. I will use this blog to try to sort through the experience.

Reality is vast.
