It seems that we just got here and we already have to go back to the States. Seven weeks is not nearly enough time to invest in a people or culture. It seems nearly impossible that we could have made any difference here, but based on what the students say about previous summer workers I know we have. I know I have done a poor job of recording what is going on here through writing, but thankfully I have been able to capture much of it through pictures. I have really enjoyed my time here in Shizuoka. I cannot wait til I can one day come back to visit these friends! I have learned so much through my time here, and am both excited and nervous to apply it to life back in the States. So here's to a few more days in Japan before we're due home. May they be honoring to the One who called us here, to those who are supporting us in prayer, and to our friends in Shizuoka.
