Spent the morning in LA with the lovely @faitheraser who graciously showed me around and enabled my caffeine addiction. At least I got to make the pilgrimage to @bluebottle
Last day in Japan and I can't help but think our return is premature. It's been an absolute privilege and blessing to be here to invest in university students in Tokyo and I can't wait to see how God calls me back to this beautiful country.

This is my lovely campus team that I've had the pleasure of sharing with this whole summer mission! They've been encouraging and challenging me all at the same time and I couldn't have made it through this without them

I can't believe that it's already our last night in Tokyo before debrief. I've learned too much to put into an Instagram caption but I guess the main thing I learned is that I'm definitely coming back
So much tradition and culture to learn about every day! Learning about Japan's rich history has been one of my favorite things about talking to university students here.
I am going to miss my morning walks to the train station. Setagaya is such a peaceful part of town and I really envy the people who live here for real.
4 the 'gram.
Rainy days in my favorite place.
It's hard to believe my time here is almost up.
It's truly a shame when a beautiful shop serves not so beautiful coffee
Lol I spent my 21st birthday at Disney Sea in Tokyo. That's pretty neat.

Extra, extra! Read all about it!
Last one but seriously shout out to the slow bar barista for coming out from behind the counter and explaining all of their different pour over options to me and giving me sincere attention. Customer service is next level.

The peeps at @nozy_coffee are doing some amazing work in Tokyo. I had an impeccable single origin Rwanda espresso shot and an iced Costa Rican pour over. Both roasted and brewed to perfection.
