I have to confess I am way too busy getting ready to go back home to post anything interesting. I am going home for a month next Wednesday. I am so looking forward to celebrating Christmas with my family.

I can’t wait to see all my friends back home…being in Japan has helped me re-appreciate all the wonderful blessings God has given me back home- church, friends, and all the small things I love about American Christmases (real trees, not fake ones, lights on houses, caroling, etc.). Being here has also helped me appreciate the great things about my home country and also want to see the bad things change so much.

I am so happy to be heading home. I hope and pray my trip home will be refreshing and lots of fun.
