First of all I am probably not going to type much because this Japanese keyboard is really weird but i am in Tokyo on my way to Bangkok. Ben is already on his flight. Much to our surprise we were not on the same flight on this last leg so i am still here and he is on his way. The last flight was forever long. We still have not slept a wink. That may change on this next flight but too soon to know for sure. It was depressing to get here and realize that the next flight from here is half as long as Dallas to Tokyo. Honestly I got a real sense of how far from home I really am. It would take me a long time to get back home. I started to think about all of the troops who are away from home halfway around the world missing their families. The vastness of this planet is really humbling. Then when you put it in the context of the solar system, then the galaxy, then the universe, God starts to look pretty big pretty fast.
It is already late on tuesday here, so I can tell you that the future is awesome. when this day catches up with you guys you:re going to love it.
Please be praying for us as we are leading out in Thailand. Specifically be praying that we can recover from the trip over quickly and get right to work.
