Thought I'd share the short email we got from Braden today:
I am officially on Japanese soil! I am so excited! As soon as I got into the airport and started to walk around and talk to Japanese people as I made my way to my next flight, I can just tell that I'm really going to fall in love with this place. I have already begun to love the language and the people too! It is just so cool and the atmosphere is unreal! Not to mention my experience using a Japanese bathroom was very quick and very interesting. I'm not quite sure how I feel about bidets yet. Well I'm alive and well and feeling better than ever (minus the jetlag), but this is the place. I can't wait to do the work of God and to find and feed his sheep!
I love you guys so much!
