Off to Japan

Hey, this is Shannon.

Well, Sono (Josh's mother) and Lily (his extremely strong 81 year old g'ma--what a neat woman!) are here in Gaithersburg.

Tomorrow we leave for the trip of a lifetime--we will be heading out to Sendai Japan, spending a few days in Tokyo and some other parts too. We will miss you (those of you we actually know) and I just wanted to let you know that you can track our progress here, as we will be attempting to journal and post photos as we go.

If you would be able to, please pray for wisdom as we finalize our packing tonight, pray for our safety in the travel, that God would protect us from getting sick, for God's provision for Josh with food & migraines, for sleep, and a minimal adjustment to the time difference. (It is 14 hours different, I believe). Please especially pray for the children.

And please pray for the teaching and ministry of the gospel. Josh, Sono, and I have all prepared words of encouragement to share with the Japanese believers there, and I am confident that we will be able to bring words that will build their faith by sharing some of the helpful teaching on roles, parenting, and the gospel that have so benefitted us at CLC.

What a wonderful opportunity we have to see God working in another part of the world. We are so excited!
