this should work

Sorry guys, all of the instructions here on the computer are written in Japanese. Anyways, the easiest way to see the pics is to go www.photobucket.com In the search window at the top right-hand side of the screen type in tagateam2006. That should be a direct link to our pics. I am so sorry!!!! I hope that all of you enjoy. We have not put captions up on all fo the pics, so if you are womdering what you are seeing, let me know. I am extremely tired, and we just got back from karaoke, so I will not write a long blog. Just to let you all know, my readers today were all great. 6 in all. Tomorrow I have 7!! 10,11,2,5,6,7,8. Wow!! My day is packed. Judith told me to mark off 4 so that I can actually eat something. Smart idea. Thursday I only two. but we have a party so we are not reading all day. This one reader today, she and I had a wonderful talk about Christianity. She has been studying the Bible for 7 years now and is finally starting to see that maybe being a Christian is a good thing. She thinks that it is amazing how Christians act, and how we treat others. She was just wonderful to talk to and asked some very difficult but very valid questions. Her english is great as well. She made me think very hard, and also to be quick on my feet. I also need some help with one reader. She asked me the question yesterday "Why does God let bad things happen"? I tried to explain to her that in order for there to be good, there has to be bad. If there was all good, then we as Christians would not be heavily tempted and forced to pick one path to walk on. I explained that we choose one road, and our choices are good and bad. She didnt understand what I said. I tried again but she didnt know what I was saying. I guess if anybody can help me out or give me some scriptures to tell her, that would be wondeful. Anyways, I`m off to bed. I`m reading this book from MawMaw and it is amazing!! It`s called The Motive and it is tense. I hope to finish it tonight. Peace, love, and oranges my pretty folks!!!

Jordan---You might pass this along to your student who is having a hard time wondering why God allows bad things to happen. God's goal is not to make sure you are happy all the time. No matter how hard it is for you to believe this, it is time we should all do so. Life is not about us being comfortable and happy and successful and pain free. It's about becoming the man or woman God has called us to be. Life is not about each of us, it is about God. Romans 6:6---Our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with.-----I find your post very interesting and I love looking at the pictures of Japan. Post everyday, your information will be looked at and enjoyed. "Til next time, God Bless and we love you. You are doing great work for God and he will reward you in a Christian way.---Aunt Jo and Uncle Kay

jordan, i just am in awe at the wisdom and knowlege you have and also how much more you will have when this six weeks is over. one verse that came to mind as i was reading your blog is john 10:10. many times God is blamed for things He doesn't do; also,there are just some things that are unexplainable.
we love you sweetie and pray that God will give you good seed to sew into your new friends life.
