The Landons were planing to leave for the US on furlough in a year and a half. He mentioned travel plans and where in the US they might be staying, his interest in a business course, his impressions of the human nature and the church worldwide. He remembers the kids learning to speak and all three languages (Thai, Chinese and English being used, sometimes in the same sentence)
