Well it sure has been a while, but I promised all of you that I would do a final wrap up, so here it is!
The last couple of weeks since being back have been hectic to say the least. Between moving stuff to the in laws and moving our selves to Caronport, we've been going non stop. But we can finally say that we are now settled, at least for the next 8 months.
We have had some time to debrief and it's been so good to just sit down and visit with so many of our friends.
It's a shame to say but I have to admit since we have been back I have not spent as much time in prayer as I would like, but I'm hoping that will change now that we are settled and ready for school. In hope that God will continue to reveal things to us about this summer. Some of the things that have already come out of this summer are; that we learned so much, grew in ways we didn't imagine and that God was there with us every step of the way.
While in Japan we didn't realise how much we loved the people there, but now that we've been back it always comes up... We miss the people and culture so much, way more then we had expected.
One of our high lights for the summer was definitely the pastors that we worked with, we will remember them where ever we go. What really stuck with us was how real their faith was and how persistently they serve regardless of the size of there congregation. We have a lot to learn from them.
As we start our year of School in Caronport, we have no idea what next April will look like for us. We know that God wants us in long term ministry, but don't know where or what that is going to look like. We remind ourselves to put our trust in God daily and know that He will reveal His plan to us in His timing.
Thank you so much for walking along side us in prayers, financial support and love! It's people like you that allow God to work through you that makes it's possible for us to listen to His calling. We pray rich, rich Blessings on each one you!!!
