Thanks for praying for our U.S. trip. We come back to Japan rejoicing. All our children are finished with school. It’s the first time since 1983 that we’ve had no children in school. Both Andrew and Anna have jobs and are (or will soon be) getting used to a brand new environment. Also, Mary Esther’s dad, who has been living alone in a very large house is moving to an independent living complex where he will have meals supplied, and much more company on a daily basis. So we come back to Japan much lighter than when we left.
