First, praise God with me that additional funds have been pledged since the last posting just two days ago, bringing me within $875 per month of full funding! A number of people have contacted me to say they would like to contribute, but have not yet specified an amount. If you would like to join in the effort, please let me know!
Second, I purchased airline tickets for Japan this afternoon! I will be flying out on April 13, arriving in Japan on April 14!
Thank you for your continued prayers, encouragement, and support!
