5 things I love and 5 things I hate

about being a missionary. I love...
  • the wider world-view we have as a result.
  • communicating with people about the "weird" lifestyle we live.
  • the chance to be a part of reaching Japan for Christ.
  • the freedom we have to be counter cultural, both in Japan and in Australia.
  • having friends from all over the world.
I hate...
  • living in a place where I don't speak the language well.
  • the uncertainty which comes with the job at times.
  • being apart from friends and family, especially at times of hardship.
  • saying goodbyes.
  • (and you should know this one) packing and travelling.
