No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth! I'm vacationing with my family in good ole' Iowa. As you may have noticed, blogging will be minimal so I can maximize the time with everyone here. Most of all, I'm looking forward to seeing my twin brother, Mark, and his family who are flying in from Japan on Thursday. Mark is passionate about missions and reaching this world for Christ. He and his wife, Maki, will stay in the states for six weeks and speak at my church on August 3rd. Take a look at their blog, pray for them, and if you're a member of LBC plan on attending the Sunday night service in August.
