The days are growing longer just in time for the longer days I have needed lately as I prepare for a trip to East Asia. It has been a dream of mine for years to travel to this part of the world, to be a part of what God is doing there. I am incredibly thankful for the opportunity and have been busy updating my passport, getting shots, and purchasing supplies. I am happy to report that I am completely packed and just counting down the days until we leave Friday evening.

I also wanted to let you know that for those of you who come to this blog via my website, that site will be closing down in the next day or two. Please add my blog —– directly to your favorites and continue to visit me here. The cost and difficulty of maintaining a full website has been more than I could keep up with the past couple of years, especially when blogger has become so comprehensive.

Finally, I pray that you all have a blessed Easter. Though it didn’t transpire exactly as I had planned, I hope our season in the wilderness together this year has prepared you for Resurrection Sunday.
