it feels normal...

Today we got back from Colorado (again) where we had our STINT briefing. There were 400 people at this conference, most of whom left this week for cities all over the world on STINT. I think one of my favorite things about the conference is that it felt normal that we were leaving the country for a year (or more, we'll see :)). On any given day I would be sitting next to people going to Siberia, Italy, North Africa, Costa Rica, Thailand, etc.... the list goes on. What great company!
So, we feel ready. We move out of our apartment in less than 2 weeks and I know I'll miss it. We'll miss friends and family A LOT too, of course. But, we couldn't feel more confident in our call to Tokyo.. so, we are excited and ready. Only 31 days to go, and counting... YEAH!!!

Oh, and if anyone out there is into fiction- I just finished the BEST book: The Ezekiel Option by Joel Rosenberg. It's based on end-time prophecies and Rush Limbaugh describes it , "like an episode of 24 with a supernatural twist". Who wouldn't love this book?!
