welp... i am alive in the western world. after about 44 hours. its around 4pm at home. and 3 am here. so although i'm wide awake. i'm going to go to sleep now to begin changing my schedule. thank you all for your pryrs. He has already given me a few opportunities to share. once with a girl Katybree (i believe) in the charlotte airport. got to basically spell out the whole message for her and talk about why the word teaches things that are far from what we often see in the lives of those who proclaim it. it was neat to be able to explain what it means to actually be a follower of the son. and the things that i'm still learning about that. I aslo got to share with a taiwanese friend named jason, whom i met earlier today. a believer for about 10 years.. yet lives in an environment scarce of encouragment.
I meet the 8 volunteers tomorrow who have been helping betty and josh for the last several weeks. I'm excited. more later
