Oh how God loves the orphan!
Last night it came through loud and clear as our team who will travel to China this coming June to serve at Shepherd's Field Children's Village in Tianjin held an auction and dinner to benefit the orphaned children with special needs who call the village home.
What an evening it was!

to benefit precious orphaned children half a world away
Oh, did I mention we served an Italian dinner on
an Irish holiday (St. Paddy's Day) to benefit
children in China - truly an international affair!
Some of Philip's China travel group was there as well,
and we can never resist a picture of our children.
Sorry Ted, you didn't make it into this picture!
So many details had to come together to make this event a success, and God handled each and every one from the company who catered the event, to the prizes donated, to the family business who said they would work for free to provide us with online bidding, to all of the generous folks who attended to support children they have never met.
Giving Him all the praise and glory for a very successful night!
