This furlough has not gone as expected, but I know the events are not a surprise to God. Although some things have been difficult, I am grateful for the Lord’s timing that has allowed me to be stateside at this time. I have been on a long blog break and that probably needs to continue. I would like to post some about the Taste for Truth Bible study that I have been doing. If nothing else, it keeps me accountable. =) I’ve also been working on the author’s newest study The Renewing of the Mind Project. I’m excited that my Sunday School class will be doing this as a summer study. I recommend this book to anyone!!! It helps you take Scripture Meditation to a whole new level. Thank you for your patience. I will do my best to drop by from time to time over the summer. My plans are to return to Japan sometime in August, if the Lord wills.
