The Summer has ended, Fall is starting and it’s the time when things seem to be overlapping. The weather is still quite warm and humid, but the nights are cool and breezy. There’s still a few cicadas singing here and there, but the Brown-eared Bulbuls and Azure-winged...

Hello, Spring!

I’ve been in Japan for half a year now, so I wanted to give everyone a quick update! The Cherry Blossom season has come and gone and now everything is fresh and green outside. I’ve now experienced every season Japan has to offer, and all that comes with them (fall leav...

        Greetings once again from Japan, where Spring has started to bloom after a record breaking cold winter. I had hoped to send out an update in early February, but something occurred that I thought I should include but wasn’t sure how to write about it. One of my...

The past two years have been very interesting for me, to say the least. When I ended 2014 on a low point, I had no idea it would end up leading to the greatest adventure of my life. I responded to God in trust and faith, and He’s led me step by step and given me courag...
