We need to hit the sack for an early wakening tomorrow but I wanted to check in and let you know that we are having a great time.  We miss home, but we are enjoying this once in a lifetime experience.  So much to see and take in.  Today we hit Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall.  And drove by the Olympic Stadium and Village.

Tomorrow we will head for Guangzhou where Lydia is living.  And we will be getting her early the next day.  It’s hard to believe it has all come down to 2 nights of sleep.  So much going through our heads.  I would love to share with you but I need to go to bed.  Some prayer items…

  1. Neither of us is feeling 100%.  Pray that would change quickly!
  2. Luggage in China is a bit tricky.  Their weight restrictions are ridiculous so we are falling under the mercy of the airport check-in people.  Pray for favor!
  3. One last day without Lydia.  Hard to believe.  Pray that even this last day she would be hearing about us and getting prepared to meet us.  Pray for bonding and attachment quickly.

I have a ton on my heart to share.  I should be able to write a lot in the next couple of weeks.  We will have Lydia but there is nothing on the schedule in terms of sightseeing so our days will be a lot less full (sort of…) Thanks so much for your prayers.  We absolutely cannot wait to get home (and get a GLASS OF ICE for Pete’s sake!!!!)

Lots of love,
