It’s hard to describe the bittersweet feelings we experienced during this Christmas – our last Christmas in the States for a while. I think Winnie the Pooh says it best: “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”(Although as good Calvinist we would change the “lucky” to “blessed”). For us, that “something” is family and friends like you!
Thanks for being patient with us and our lack of contact over the holidays. We hope that the Lord blessed you with sweet time with family and friends as well! During this break we went up 2 more percentage points without doing anything, reminding us once again who’s really in charge! Now, as we begin the travel circuit again, going to several missions conferences and churches over the next two months, please pray that the Lord would get us to Japan by April!
