While looking at my jam-packed schedule and trying to figure out what to eliminate, the blog was the first thing that come to mind. I’m not sure how long the break will need to be. I would appreciate your prayers as we continue to travel and start our final preparations for our return to the needy country of Japan. To give you a small idea of what life has been like for us on this furlough…we have put over 30,000 miles on our van since July! WHEW!!! I’m tired just typing that! HA! I will return as soon as I am able. Thank you to all for your prayers for our “adopted” country of Japan.
