I’ve lost count; this is either the fifth or sixth time I’ve had the honor of retreating with our IM missionaries in Japan. They’re family now and we’ve had a wonderful time, which ended today. Tomorrow I start toward Nashville, via the Philippines. I’m missing my Katrina, so eager to be home. Thanks to all who have prayed. I covet your prayers for traveling mercy and strength. Our fellow-workers in Japan are remarkable, faithfully sowing the seed and enjoying some of the firstfruits of harvest. One day a fuller harvest will come. Here are some pics if the retreat. Wish you could have been here.
