Give and it will be given to you. 
A good measure, pressed down,
shaken together and running over,
will be pured into your lap.
Luke 6:38a

Thank you Gift of Adoption Fund for awarding us a $3500 grant!!!

The Lord will guide you always; 
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame. 
You will be like a well watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
Isaiah 58:11

His love never ceases to amaze me.  Every little thing is just falling into place.  We feel like we are just along for the ride, not at all driving or leading. It is very humbling and invigorating at the same time. 

We will leave home tomorrow evening and stay in St. Louis.  We have to be at the airport at 5:30am Sunday morning to check in for our flights.  We will fly out of Lambert at 8:00am Sunday and land in Beijing at 9:40pm on Monday China time (which is 8:30am Monday morning in Missouri). 

Just 42 hours left..........
