There are always so many details one can talk about when traveling, and I have now found that especially true when it comes to overseas travel. I am not very fond of eight hour flights, but everything went so smoothly and on time that I cannot complain. I enjoyed my four hour layover in Hawaii very much even though it was just at the airport. It was a very nice place, and I have resolved to go there when I can actually spend time in that lovely state.
On the plane from Hawaii to Japan, I was one of six Westerners and the only blonde person. It was a bit intimidating once I arrived at the airport, but even though they lost my luggage and I had to retrieve it, things turned out just fine. Mrs. Epley and I took a monorail, two trains and a taxi to reach their home which we arrived at rather late at night.
So far I must say that I love being here. My hosts are wonderful, the country seems pretty amazing, and the weather is much better than in Texas. Thank you all for your prayers and support. I could not have made it here without you all, but most especially without God. He is good, and I am so thankful.
That is all for now. I do not know how much internet I will be using while I am here, but you are sure to hear from me somewhat frequently.
From Japan with love,
