Ok – here are some details that we just learned – first of all the company’s committee has not officially approved the sale yet – one member of the committee insisted that the real estate developer’s company see inside the building. As mentioned before we think this is very much a Japanese thing – to protect the relationship. It’s actually a positive thing I think because it allows us to get in the building and if for whatever reason WE want to pull out – it’s an opportunity. Also if they had something to hide they wouldn’t want us to see inside.
Secondly the visit we learned will be on the 23rd in Japan. Joe Kim and Tom Shimatani will go as “representatives” of the real estate development company. Please pray for that visit – for wisdom, confirmation, etc.
After that we anticipate being able to sign our contract with the developer around mid-August!
Thank you for your continued prayers!
