The day has finally arrived! Enya and I are sitting at the airport waiting for our flights. First to Dallas, then Beijing, and final a connecting flight to Nanning, China. We arrived at the airport at 6:30 am, and we'll arrive in Nanning at 11:05pm Saturday evening (China is 12 hours ahead of us). Hopefully we'll be at the hotel by 1am Sunday morning. Nanning is a city of close to 7 million so the airport could be quite a distance from our hotel. Sunday will be a day to catch our breath and stock up on supplies.
Leaving was hard, especially when we'd planned on Virgil and I traveling together. Fortunately most of the girls were still asleep so that made it easier this morning. Please pray for their hearts. Telling mama goodbye is hard, especially if you've had a mother say goodbye before and never return. Pray also for Emma, as she is about to have
her life changed completely.
