I’ve been home since Sunday, but find myself thinking often about my short time in Dhaka. It was such a blessing getting to know the women in the cohort.

This has allowed me to collaborate with local churches in various places in Japan by sending missionaries to them.

"Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
— Matthew 28:18-20
