ah, poor little blog... so lonely and neglected!! I am sure I will regret not updating more, but it's gotten bumped very low on my priority list!
Life continues to be busy! I'm still in the midst of full time language study which of course fills up most of my time. Bobby's busy with Bible Studies and sermon prep as our teammates are on furlough right now. Just a little less than 2 months till they get back though! Can't believe how fast time flies! Anyway, hopefully things will slow down a bit for him after they get back. We have an annual conference coming up at the end of October which we are looking forward to. We have a couple from the home office (actually I think they may be "one the field" somewhere in Asia for most of the year, and I don't really know what their "title" is) coming to speak. They are both really great speakers and I'm particularly looking forward to Sue's talks for the women. She's written a couple really good books I've read (like this one and this one).
We are continuing to get to know our neighbours... it's finally starting to get cool enough to go out for walks again so we'll be seeing more of them now. Our downstairs neighbours with 2 girls recently moved... but still live in this town so we hope to keep up with them. The other day one of the boys (about 11 years old) came with 2 friends and knocked on our door and said they wanted to learn English! We were a little surprised, but welcomed them in and Bobby gave them a brief "lesson". I was thanking God for such a great opportunity He literally placed right in front of us! Hoping and praying they'll come back again so we can get to know them better!
We've had an encouraging summer of kids' ministry... we had 4 kids pray to accept Christ! Please pray for wisdom with follow up!!
I've recently started helping with a group that meets on the Base in Iwakuni called MOPS (Mothers of Pre-schoolers). I'm helping with childcare every other Thursday. I've only done it once so far, but it was fun. I enjoyed being able to play in English :)
Other than that, I can't think of much else to say! Thanks for sticking with me even though I never write anymore!! Hope you have a great week!! :)
