Nine years ago we were blessed to be able to host 18 year old Kohta as an exchange student for one year in our home in Missouri. Over that year we had so many opportunities to share life and share God's love with him. He's now 27, married, and working at a great job in Tokyo and he's still very much the kind, sweet-hearted young man he was so many years ago. He was there at the hospital when Mia was born and she loved sharing all her gymnastics and movie-making skills with him. Continue to pray for Kohta to understand how much God loves him.
