Friday, March 20

Over the past month, we have slowly been saying goodbye to all of our friends and family, as we get ready to leave. Sunday night there was a goodbye party for us at church. We were so blessed by all of our friends and family who are supporting us, praying for us, and cheering us on as we move to Japan.

It has been such a bittersweet past few weeks, preparing to go. It's so hard to say goodbye to all of the people who have invested in us, been such a blessing to us, and really formed who we have become. At the same time, we know God is preparing us and asking us to move forward into an exciting time. Even though we don't know what Japan will really be like, or what God has in store for us, it's both exciting and scary to sit and wait for him to reveal His plans to us.

We are in Ohio now for two weeks of training and then we'll be off to Japan.

Thank you to all of you who took us out for dinners, wrote us notes, helped us pack and move, and have really just loved us. We will miss all of you so much - you are each a wonderful part of our lives!

I'm having trouble posting pictures so hopefully I'll be able to post some soon.
