Update from Michael Oh

Here's a brief snippet from Michael Oh's recent update, along with a great family picture.

"We return home to Japan well rested, so encouraged after wonderful times of fellowship and worship and sharing. The memories made with family were priceless. Just the chance for the grandparents to get to know and love MJ was worth the summer. My travel schedule was reasonable as I didn't want to wear myself out with travel. Last weekend Pearl and MJ and I enjoyed a wonderful time in Minnesota. We had such an encouraging time with John and Noel Piper. It's been great to have lots of time to think, pray, listen, and learn this summer."

The girls begin school 12 hours after they arrive in Japan--pray for an easy transition back into their home and routine. Pray for Michael as he faces the heavy challenges of leading the growing seminary and of support-building.
