Today's News

We heard today that all our exception requests for housing have been turned down...we won't be allowed to live in CGO housing, we aren't allowed to sign to accept a 4 bdr house, they won't give us two units.... We've been in TLF a month and are hoping to be extended while we continue to look for an off base house. At this point we are finding lots of agents who are building homes but nothing ready NOW..... I WISH they had simply said all this when we called in May, rather than encouage us to put in pointless exceptions which ate up our TLF time waiting for responses.

We still believe that God is preparing or has prepared a place for us to live while we are assigned to Misawa. Please pray that our time is extended in the the TLF and that we find the spot where God would have us live.

The funny thing is I'm no longer discouraged about this. It is getting funny a spiritual warfare sort of way. Honestly, I believe God is going to do good things in us, for us and through us in Japan.

In more EXCITING NEWS - we had our PWOC WILD (Protestant Women of the chapel - Women Intent on Leadership Development) today! We had TWENTY-TWO women attend...and it was only advertised on Sunday. YES.....and we had 39 children! Mike and a host of youth watched the kids....What hearts of service. How can I be depressed with such great things going on around me?

Choosing Joy!
