Leaving Now

We are leaving now for the Ministry of Education and thus it begins. Wanted to let you all know the boys have begun blogging in earnest and we will post every day or two from them.

Much Love to Everyone!

Wow! How exciting!! Brings back memories of our trip, but luckily no flight like your last one.

As for the internet, we found it was better during times when students would be in school (just like it used to be here in the US back in the day :-). Good luck!!

Not sleeping (told you the insomnia might work for you this trip) and thinking of where you guys are right now, half a world away. Vegas.

You know, that reaction the girls had is so very human and seems so normal. Isn't that wonderful! A few days and the stresses of today will seem so far away.

Yesterday I had a friend call me with an urgent prayer request. She is adopting a SN child from China. Apparently, the 11 year old that is in the orphanage with the little girl is like her sister. She wrote a tear-jerking letter basically begging them to adopt her too. She read me the letter and my heart absolutely BROKE that an 11 year old should have that kind of life and pain.

Now, I'm hear reading the other side of that really same story -- and my heart is broken all over again for these girls. While I'm concerned for you all, I know you can handle it: you know what's on the other side waiting for them. I wonder if it's sort of like God watching us wanting so badly to stay here on earth and Him knowing what a wonderful life waits for us in Heaven? If this is all you know ... you know? Your thoughts on it all are insightful and beautiful. I'm off to read the next excerpt of how things are going. Holding all of you -- girls especially -- in prayers.
