We're here!

It's been a long time coming... and here we are. I am sitting in my apartment in Tokyo staring oddly at this blogger page because for some reason all of blogger.com's website is in japanese, I guess I should be getting used to things like this.

God is good and we have totally loved our first 24 hours or so being here. It's kind of been a whirlwind, but a good one. Good-bye's were sad and hard, though. If I were to add anything to the Bible (eventhough I know God is perfect and it's not lacking a thing) I would add "no more goodbyes" to Revelation 21 when it talks about what the new earth will be like. It would go a little something like this:
"He will wipe every tear from their eyes and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning or crying nor pain NOR GOODBYES anymore, for the former things have passed away." (KNAV-Kristen's new adapted version)

I'll post some pictures in the next couple of days and let you all in on some fun stories and details of our first week. For now, I'll just tell you we're here safe and feeling as if we're exactly where God wants us to be. We love you- whoever you are that checks this blog. :)
