  1. At about 16:55 in the podcast, I just burst out crying. For me I feel this has been so true. My parents are married, but because of our extended families living in two places (Japan/USA) our immediate family has lived separately to help each side of our families. The majority of the time I have lived where my mom went, but I definitely felt the lack of my dad’s presence. This helped me. Thank you so much. God must be so grateful to have people like you doing what you are doing.
