God's Plan For Us

This is our journey - God's incredible plan for our lives. When we followed the moving of the Holy Spirit, He opened the windows of Heaven and poured out upon us blessings we never dreamed of! Indescribable joy!

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Last Stop Here

We are in Guangzhou, safely settled in our (very nice) room. Our plane was delayed taking off from Nanchang, so by the time we got to our room it was probably around 9pm. It made for a long day, but the girls both did great on the flight. We met some young adults from Montana and Idaho who were in Nanchang teaching English at the college for 2 1/2 weeks, and were on their way back home.

Medical exams were first thing this morning. They don't do the TB test like they used to. Instead they draw blood now. They take the girls in a separate room (we're not allowed to go in with them) to get the blood, and they evidently had problems getting Ximi's vein. She took much longer than NiNi, and when she came out her little face broke my heart. It's the first time we've really seen her cry. They will call us by noon on Monday if there is a problem.

After that, it was a trip to Carrfours (sp?) - a French 'Walmart', to pick up supplies for our final few days here in China. Getting everything in some semblance of order in the room is always a challenge for me. I must say I'm glad this was my last time unpacking before we're home.

We visited a park that's a few minutes from the room this afternoon, and though it was a beautiful park, it was crowded (it's Children's Day here in China, so families take their children out to celebrate) and IT WAS HOT!! It's not supposed to be any cooler the next few days, so we need to get used to wearing wet clothes (100% humidity and in the 90's).

The girls continue to amaze us with how well they are doing. Continued thanks for all the prayers!

Blessings, Cindy
