Dear reader, this brief post is intended to give you a rough update; there will be future posts with greater details when my information is a little more solid.
1) I will be in the Philippines from January 12-25, 2011. This will be another global justice trip run through my seminary, this time with Professor Eleazar Fernandez.
2) I am hoping to spend a week in Japan prior to my stay in the Philippines (roughly January 5-12, 2011).
3) My trial date is set for January 27, 2011 in Phoenix, Arizona. I am supposed to be there a day early to consult with my lawyer regarding my arrest last July and my experiences spending the night in the 4th Avenue Jail. I might have to figure out a way to get there from Japan (our layover on the return from the Philippines).
Life seemed comparatively simple about an hour ago.
