After traveling all day on Tuesday, (Wednesday for Japan) Jarom had to wake early and take a flight to Okinawa. From there, he had a 6 hour layover before flying to Miyako Island. It is the 2nd most southern island of Japan. Very tropical. Very humid.
Jarom said, "You know when you you are camping and you are just covered in sweat and sitting by a fire? then you try to lay down for sleep but you are sticky? but that is after a whole days activity? Well tha'ts how you feel after stepping out of the shower."
He will be serving with Elder Gandy. They share an apartment with another set of missionaries who are Japanese natives. We couldn't be more thrilled for this first area!
