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

We Made It!

We arrived in Beijing about 3,  and got to the hotel around 4:00. We'd been going for 24 hours, and were ready to take a little nap. The Lord graciously allowed us to have an empty seat beside us on the flight, which gave us (in truth, it was me, not us) a little more room to get comfortable (as much is possible for 13 hours). Thanks to a tailwind, the flight was an hour shorter than anticipated. We met with Shirley (our agency representative who was with us the last time we were here as well) this morning and took Elli to see the Great Wall. She was as impressed as she thought she would be. We've determined that none of us will try out for a stair climbing class any time soon ;-). It's a wonder I made it to the first section. Pretty sure I had forgotten (since our last time at the Great Wall) that I had those muscles.

After eating at a Chinese buffet, we headed on to the Summer Palace. (We had Elli pick the two sites she had wanted to see, and those were at the top of her list.) As with the other times we have visited, the workmanship there amazed me. The longest covered corridor is there housing over 14,000 paintings. It is a beautiful place to see.

Thank you for continued prayers!
