Dave Turns 60!

This month Dave turned 60 years old, and it was quite a celebration.  He was showered with many emails of congratulations (or condolences) and words of encouragement.  Some dear friends came during the day and BALLOONED (is that a word?) our house while he was at work!  Neil and Dale, thank you!




THEN, our kids drove 9 hours to surprise their dad for his birthday!  They came on Friday and went back on Saturday, arriving home around 3 am!  Thank you, Dave and Erin, for the best gift EVER!

Beautiful Fall Day Walk

What a glorious day! The wonder of God's creation was on full display today as Barbara and I took a walk nearby.

Home Sweet Home

It's almost 10:30pm.  This is Barb writing for Dave, who is soaking in the tub and I think has fallen asleep!  I know I can speak for him and all the team and say thank you for your prayers and for following them on this journey.  May God receive all the glory!  Sleep well, weary guys!

Japan Relief Trip - Day 8 - Thursday

This morning we left our beloved Takayama cabin and made the trip back to Chiba in 7 hours and 40 minutes.




 Front view of the cabin

A wildflower in our front yard



 Lots of highway workers
 More tsunami damaged vehicles

 GPS not working anymore


 On the highway. Look closely - he's plugged in!

A cemetery 

 All these next pics are of people we passed on the highway. Just a little fun on a long trip...














 OK, enough of that! Here's a few more pix...

Japanese apartment buildings called danchi

You have to read and think quick

Red parts indicate where the traffic jams are at the moment

At the toll booth

Finally back in Chiba and ended the day with a visit to the "kaiten zushi" place - motorized revolving sushi counter


Sweet dreams, and see you tomorrow!
