visiting village

yesterday we were afforded the unique pleasure of visiting a typical Chinese village. One very similiar to what our girls would have probably grown up in. Definitely one similiar to where they were fostered. 80% of all Chinese live in the rural areas, so this village represents how 80% of the entire population lives. It was a humbling, beautiful experience. No matter how primitive to me, with shared wells and shared toilets, God was there. I love that there is no where that we can go that He is not. The people were friendly and kind to us, even inviting us to eat with them. Precious Chinese people. I felt very intrusive as we took photos and videos of their homes, but we were assured it was ok. I am sure as I have time to reflect I will write more. Unfortunately I cannot see my blog again so I can't read any of your comments. We are still sick so please continue to pray for us. Eliana is warming up to us. She is very attached to me and is entertained by Davie Anne, but won't have a thing to do with David. It has been 4 days and his feelings are beginning to be hurt. Please pray that she will begin to accept her Daddy...her wonderful sweet Daddy. Love to you all! The other half of our group is traveling to China today! Yipee! God Bless

I know you said you won't be able to read this, but I still wanted to let you know that I am praying for your family...especially hubby.
I can relate completely to what he is going thru, but she will come around in time.
