As we settle back into our “home” culture of the military, we do sense many opportunities to minister to the folks here in northern Japan. One couple has invited us to meet with each of them to help and encourage them as they both serve in leadership positions in the chapel programs. So it has been blessing not only to get to know them personally but also to find kindred spirits in our outdoor pursuits and thus great tour guides for the local area. All five of the kids we presently have between the two families are about the same age so while it’s loud, even the kids love it.

We appreciate your prayers and God’s responses for getting settled in quickly. We’re not done, but close enough for the family to function smoothly on a daily basis and have some hope to get at least one car in the garage before snowfall in a month or so…

Please join us in praying for a smooth, uneventful delivery sometime in mid-October and for continued discernment on where and when we are to engage in the local community.

Sitting by a really hot spring in the Hachimantai mountains. Yes, that is steam…
