Day 4

The day started early when we had to find our own way to union station by 7:45. Our train departed from the station at 8:30 and we had lesson study on the train. The ride was uneventful and we reached Seattle by around 11:45. Once we got to the station, we found our way to the American hotel, which is actually a complex hostel. Once unpacked, we headed out to a time trial urban challenge sort of thing. We had to taste the cuisine of the local chinese market. The pickled plums were absolutely atrosious. We also had to eat a "Bento" platter, consisting of unagi, squid/octopus, and some other delecasies that I would rather not like to discover the name or content of. Right now I am watching a video of Gwen gagging on her plums. Anyway, we also had to make a chinese paper tube toy. We took a bus/ran to the 1st church of Christ Scientist, Seattle. When we reached the destination, we enjoyed a nice lecture from our practitioner Tom about Christian Science in Germany. Once through, we enjoyed a meal of Subway/Taco Del Mar. Afterwards, the testimony meeting was very inspiring, including healing from a very well spoken man named Quinton. The student healing started with our not so new to our class anymore classmate Cooper, and once the ice was broken, 4 others participated. Afterwards, we had a lovely walk through the fresh Seattle air, to the local McDonalds forr McFlurries, milkshakes, ice cream, and smoothies. Then, we headed back to our hostel for the night, and eagerly retired.
