Okinawa overall has been a lot of fun. It has been a completely different experience from what we did in mainland Japan.
Here we only had one english class and more bible study type classes.
We've been to some spectacular beaches here in Okinawa and we had the opportunity to visit the world's third largest aquarium, which was amazing. Check out the pictures
Oh, and that enormous tank with all the fish, it has a restaurant attached from which you can watch all these amazing sea critters as you eat really good Japanese food. It was great.
We've handed out tracts and had the opportunity to witness in English, which has been nice for me, and I'm sure, a relief for my translator. Our time here has helped to show us that there is a need everywhere and while the challenges may be different the message remains the same.
I'm thinking everyday about what will happen when we return.
I will be the same person but I don't want to live the same life focused around myself.
While I can tell now that this trip is incredibly meaningful to me, I am curious to see what it will look like in retrospect as so many things take on so many more dimensions when seen from the future. Isn't it great that God doesn't give us the gift of knowledge of our future in most cases. That's a hard one to wrap your head around but still something I am grateful for.
God can use us wherever we are and he wants us to be happy. What a wonderful God who gives us not only what we need but what we desire as well.
"Love one another so you can be completely happy."
