My old Buick is about to die, so I have been checking out some Hondas. Tonight, we are in the town for which the cars are named, in which it all started. We are staying in a church started by a group called Mission to the World. We were greeted at the airport by our friend John Evans, along with Drew and Meg, as well as another planter here named Austin Allen. John moved this past year with his family from Australia to plant a church in Chiba City, a large suburb near Tokyo, with Acts 29 and MTW. Tomorrow we will spend quite a bit of time in Chiba with John. It's good to be back in Japan. Pray God would guide us. Again, a key mission of this trip is to discern where we could plant Karis roots in the future - where we could call headquarters, who we could partner with. We need the Lord's grace to learn this.
