China Update - 10 Days to Go!

This is for all of you who received support letters and are watching for updates:

First of all, thank you so much for your prayers! I can't tell you how much they mean to me or how important they are to this trip. You guys are fighting the hardest battle for me from this side of things.

Here's where trip preparations stand:
  • All plane tickets are booked as of today - yay! This has been a source of anxiety for me because tickets prices operate exactly opposite in the US and China. The sooner you book them in the US, the cheaper they are. The same is true the later you book them in China. So, it has been a careful dance of timing to get everything taken care of!
  • I'm spending this week typing up any loose ends that need to be taken care of before I'm gone for 10 days.
  • This week we'll nail down some of the more "tourist-y" aspects of our weekend in Beijing - what we want to see when and with how much help.
Here's how you can pray for us:
  • Pray our visa paperwork has no hitches and comes back smoothly... and before we leave!
  • Pray for organization and preparation as I pack and plan. I want to feel completely prepared to leave home - both physically and spiritually!
  • Continue to pray that my heart breaks for China. This isn't a personal trip, but I have some personal stock in the trip as I test my heart to see if I can confidently stand alongside Jonny's calling to this country.
  • Pray for Jonny! He's going to be alone for 10 days... Well, just him and the puppies. This will be the longest we've been apart, and we're both going to miss each other. Pray that this isn't a place where the enemy can wheedle his way into the trip - no weak spots!
Thanks again for all your support! I can't wait to tell you about all our adventures!
