This morning we left the Garden hotel at 8:30. We ate the breakfast buffet first though! Reese cup waffles, I've missed them! I drank apple juice in your honor, Carlie! the ride to Maoming was about 5 hours. We checked into our hotel and went straight to the orphanage where I did developmental assessments on lots of sweet children, one after the other! I got to meet ---------- She is a doll and very smart! Doug and Janice and Sarah Grace are here in Maoming and staying at our same hotel. We all ate dinner together tonight...Sarah Grace says hello! It has been wonderful to see the Bush's again!
I am drained and exhausted after assessing children, and I will be doing it again all day tomorrow! I love being with each child, I just wish I could spend more time with them. But there are SO many children to test, and so we have to keep it flowing. I am praying (Please pray too) that these assessments we're doing will help adoptive families in their decision...and that all of these children will have a forever family! They are ALL so precious! It makes me SO THANKFUL for my sweet Candie, Kevin, Quan, Kimmie, Keith and Crickett from China!!!!! And thankful that Katie Lyn, Colby, Clay and Carlie are all about caring for the orphan!
Tomorrow we will spend the day at the Maoming orphanage again, and then we take a bus to our next city which is Zhanjiang. We will work in the Suixi orphanage on Wednesday.
Please pray for Laine and Katie Lyn to have strength, endurance, and the filling of the Spirit as they serve on this wonderful mission opportunity.
