Home from China

Is China calling you?

Those are the words written on a T-shirt I bought for Kevin and me.  Is China calling you? 

To adopt?

To serve?

To give generously to orphaned children living there?

Our team spent the last ten days in China serving at Shepherd's Field Children's Village in Tianjin, China.

That is where our Philip lived for the first three years of his life.  (Ted and I were there on his 4th Gotcha Day - an added bonus!)

It is an amazing place, full of people who love the children who live there.

Our team was blown away by the feelings they developed for the children of the foster village.

We went to serve the children,

But somehow, somewhere along the way,

We were the ones who were served,

Who were touched,

Who were changed forever . . .

Isn't that just like our awesome God?

Enjoy some of the snapshots of our week at Shepherd's Field.

Is that Teddy you are cradling on the floor? Our sponsor child that we pray for so often. And Joseph? Did you get to spend much time with him?
