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

Our Last Night in the Room with a Million Dollar View

This morning at breakfast we solved a mystery.  Wednesday morning when we met our guide he told us he had good news - the hotel was giving us a much larger room (free), because they felt our room was too small with the girls. The room they gave us was a lot bigger than the one we had, but what was most impressive was the view. Out our window was an incredible view of the South China Sea. The room we had before didn't even give us a hint that you could even see the sea from our hotel, and until we looked out our new window we had no idea we were so close to the ocean. It  was nice to have the extra space, but it did leave us wondering why? At breakfast today the general manager and assistant manager came to the restaurant and introduced themselves. They said they changed the room because they saw what we were doing for Erin and wanted to say thank you to us. The assistant manager was a younger woman, and she gave me three hugs in those few minutes. It was obvious that they were touched, and it touched us as well. Many times we notice the stares, but there are also many who are kind, and it seems this has been more the case here in Hainan for us. The general manager told us to let him know if there is anything we need, and asked to take a photo with us. We showed him our Easter family photo, and he took a picture of it as well. This afternoon we answered a knock at our door to find that they had sent up a fruit basket for us with an orchid on top. It was a nice way to end our time here.

We took the girls swimming again today, and once again had the pool to ourselves. The rain finally chased us inside, and the rest of the afternoon was spent packing. We leave out at 8:00 in the morning heading to Meimei in Guizhou. Sunday we will get settled in, and count down until Monday afternoon when we meet our little girl.

Continued thanks for the prayers!!
