    I've only met a few Japanese people that like cilantro. But everyone I've surveyed likes Mexican...weird.

    Who doesn’t want a lake day? Baby Olivia liked it so much she pooped out. Thanks for the invite @michikacauthorn! It was such a blast to road trip and spend the day with your family! Sayaka, I loved hanging out with you! Let’s do it again soon! #琵琶湖 #JesusLovesSushiDotCom #LakeBiwa #MustardSeedOsaka

    It’s so exciting to be back in Japan! This past weekend we went to a very famous firework festival here in Osaka! Many people dress in a traditional yukata (kinda like a summer kimono) for this special event! It was my very first time ever wearing one! Can you tell it was 95 degrees and 85% humidity?! Yukata-be-kidding-me with this heat! But the fireworks and the company was absolutely spectacular! #なにわ淀川花火大会 #JesusLovesSushiDotCom #MustardSeedOsaka @kansaicait

    Wanna meet awesome? Here she is. It was so wonderful to spend a little time with my fabulous Victoria while visiting California. This lady can make. me. laugh. And she always inspires me to do the things God has created me to do, cause that’s how she do. Now if she could only teach me how to do the #FiveMinuteFace makeup. Love you girl! #AmericansVisitAmerica #WhelchelsWorldWhirl #JesusLovesSushiDotCom @tori1231

    What better way to wrap up our trip to America than with my big fat Greek family! About 60 of us gathered in Las Vegas to celebrate my Great Aunt Angie’s 80th birthday! Somehow Matt has already become my family’s favorite, so much so, that he was personally thanked in the birthday speech: “And thank you to my favorite nephew Matt and his wife for coming all the way from Japan for this party.” His wife?! At least I was mentioned I guess haha. It was a total blast! #MyBigFatGreekFamily #Opa #AmericansVisitAmerica #WhelchelsWorldWhirl #JesusLovesSushiDotCom

    That moment you realize you've been friends with someone since you were about 15 and now they have a gorgeous 15 year-old daughter. WHAT?! The passing of time is strange, wonderful, sad and beautiful. I'm so thankful for my Krissy and her amazing family (husband Matt​ not pictured, but super awesome). We had such a great visit--vegan feasts, FRIENDS binging and PJs until noon. #AmericansVisitAmerica #WhelchelsWorldWhirl #JesusLovesSushiDotCom

    Our hearts are full and our spirits are high, thanks to many of you, as we return to Osaka, Japan, the place where God has made our home for this season. We can't begin to express how thankful we are to the countless number of you who gave us hugs, spent time with us, encouraged us and supported us while we visited America. It is a trip that we will treasure deeply for a long time. We will see you all again Christmas 2016! In the meantime, I'll be catching up on posting pics of our travels, starting with this sweet goodbye series of Matthew and his big brother Nick at the airport, minutes before we returned to our adventure across the world. Love, peace and joy to you all! Psalm 34:8

    Yesterday was an amazingly happy day! One of my favorites since moving to Japan! My beautiful friend Kana became a Christian and was baptized! She is such a kindhearted and joyful woman, and I can't wait to see how God uses her to spread His love and grace! I'm so thankful to be a part of her life! Love you Kana! #MustardSeedOsaka #Osaka #OsakaJapan #OsakaJapan365 #JesusLovesSushiDotCom
