sending best wishes {and best friends} to saipan

Best wishes and many prayers to some very dear friends that are waiting in the Houston Intercontinental Airport to fly to the other side of the world right now. Joey and Elizabeth have been some of our best friends over the past few years and I am so thankful that our paths crossed.

They have committed to teach for one year on the island of Saipan, in the Northern Mariana Islands. Don't know where that is? Don't worry... I didn't either. Saipan is the "largest" of the US Commonwealth Northern Mariana islands... but don't be fooled, it is by no-means large. It is only 12 miles long and not even 6 miles wide. The island is located directly north of Guam and southeast of Japan.

Joey and Elizabeth will do great in Saipan... they love adventure and can meet new people with their eyes closed. They are both incredible teachers and have a passion for traveling. Best wishes to you both... enjoy your new journey. We love you guys.
