Mid-March 2011 Update – Post Earthquake

First off, I hope all is well with you and yours.  The person that is reading these words.

Second off, The Ward Family is doing ok in Tsukishima, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Japan.  We felt and continue to feel after-shock-shakings from the big earthquake that hit Touhoku on Friday, March 11, 2011.  Our thoughts, prayers and ACTIONS are with the folks in the areas most severely affected by the earthquake and following tsunami.

Finally, MPIJ is winding down this Japanese fiscal year at the end of March, 2011.  Since 2008, WE have been able to keep MPIJ afloat on a full-time basis, however, starting in April 2011, MPIJ is changing it’s time-focus from Full-time to Part-time.

Finally, Finally – MPIJ will be moving out of their current classroom in Mita, Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan at the end of March.  The NEW location is TBA.  (No, no, NOT TechBoston Acacademy…….To Be Arranged…..! ) If you or other kind, like-minded f0lks know of some low cost (FREE/Barter-System is ok also…!) classroom space to move into, please do not be shy in contacting me.


Over and out/Love,

Bill Ward, MPIJ, Mobile: 090.9349.2058, bward@mpij.us
