Our seven weeks here have been sweet, chock full of learning and growth. We are ready to move on from this season, but sad to leave all our friends. We've gone pretty deep with the people here, and it is always hard to part with people that have laughed and cried and grown together. But, all good things must come to an end.
We will be traveling basically all day tomorrow. We leave the house at 9am tomorrow, drive to the airport in Bangkok, then fly out at 3pm, from Bangkok to Sichuan, with a layover in Hong Kong. We won't make it to our destination until almost midnight. It's gonna be a long day...
The very next morning, we are going to the orphanage! Please be lifting us up as Donna and I go spend the day with the wonderful children. Sara will not be with us, so it will be interesting communicating with the driver and the director as far as plans and details. But we are excited, nonetheless. We will hopefully get some great stories and pictures to share with you!
We'll have three more days after that, for a total of four full days in Sichuan. It's gonna be crazy fast and a whirlwind of stuff going on. Sara and I have lots to talk about... I haven't seen her since May! I'm very excited to be reunited with my dear friend and co-director. Again, please be lifting the two of us up as we catch up and discuss lots of things, all in the two days she will be in town with us. We also have a meeting at CRDF, our umbrella organization, if you would like to be lifting that up as well. Lots of people to see, places to go! Literally.
I'll write again when we get there!
