China

Well, now would be a good time to go back to China...actually anytime would be a good time.

Last night I had a dream that I went to live in China in a little apartment by myself.  I didn't speak Mandarin and I was going to be playing with the kids at the Chenzhou SWI orphanage we went to this past summer.  Somehow in my dream time went by really fast and it was the day before my last day there.  The kids were going to put on a little "show" for me and sing for me.  When it was time to say goodbye to all the kids and the nannies I started to bawl.  In my dream I knew that this was the last time I was ever going to be in China.  This was my last trip there ever.

I think a lot about what if the trip I took to China over the summer was my last trip and how heart breaking that would be.  I could cry about thinking that that trip was my last.  China happens to be my favorite place in the world.  Without a doubt, if I could live anywhere, it would be China.  I think about those precious kids so much and how much of an impact they had on me.  I will NEVER forget those children.  I pray that families would find them and that those precious kids would know how much they are loved--by God more than anyone else.

I pray everyday that that last trip was not my last to China...and I hope someday to live there and go back to Chenzhou to the SWI orphanage I love and miss so dearly.
