    One of my Granddaughters recently graduated from the University of Maine with a teaching degree. Her Masters degree is next. Nicole has always wanted to join a missionary organization to teach English in Japan.

    She went on a short term mission trip several years ago, fulfilling a dream of hers to go there. Well, it happened! Today, 7am she left the Portland Jet Port, Maine, to fly to Ohio for two weeks of training, and meeting the rest of the teachers that will join her for two years of teaching English to Japan's young students.

    This is fulfilling Nicole's prayers and the Lord's leading for years, this morning is the start of that journey in Jesus. Needless to say, I'm so very proud of my special Nichole.

    O Reba, I'm so proud of my Grandchildren. Their all grown up and serving Jesus in one way or another. I have 10 Grandchildren and 5 Great Grandchildren. Everyone is saved and bringing up their children to love the Lord. What a blessing. God is so good to this old Country Preacher, I don't deserve His Grace.

    Hi Chopper,
    It's a wonderful thing to know that all those you love are members of the Church of God.
    One big happy family! It's comforting to know that they serve God and have a good life for the doing of His will.

    One thing I did notice from the picture above. It reminded me of when my daughter moved to Italy in the 90's.
    Look at her eyes...Look at his eyes.

    I understand both.

    God bless her in her endeavors.

    It just means "congratulations". I am half-Japanese, but I was born in America.

    I'm glad you have a strong interest in your heritage. When my grandparents immigrated from Hungary in 1915 they made the decision that the old country should be left behind and forgotten. Now, I wish I had a closer connection to my heritage.

    Hi KevinK. Sorrry I took so long in answering you, I had to find out from her Mom....Nicole will be going to Tamura, Japan. She is an English Teacher with the Wakakusa Program. They send Teachers to various parts of Japan.

    Thanks for asking, your prayers for her success would be appreciated. She does speak enough of their language to get by. She has loved the land of Japan and it's people since a teenager and has wanted to go there as a Missionary for as long as I can remember.
