Well, we are finally, finally back home.
Reunited as a family.
The trial of the last few weeks is OVER - once and for all.
And let me tell you, it was definitely a time of trial.
A time of worry, anxiety, and testing.
And although it was wrapped up in blessings, in the form of special time with very dear friends and family, it was certainly a huge TEST for me personally, for our marriage, and for our family.
A walk through the desert.
But I'm happy to report that we are emerging on the other side all the stronger for it, with our faith having been refreshed, renewed, and definitely strengthened.
So I am thankful for the sand and the heat of the desert, because as usual, they only serve to make us more aware of the oasis He provides daily.
Thank you to all of you who covered us in prayer, and please don't forget to continue to pray for the Japanese as they work to reconstruct their country.
