have a very blessed time Bethany, and Rachel too!! :) I'm sure there were tears shed on the part of those who were leaving and those who were being left behind.

And...as the hymn says: "God be with you till we meet again - By His counsels guide, uphold you - With His sheep securely fold you...Daily manna still provide you...God be with you till we meet again."

We uphold you in prayers and look forward withi joy to your arrival back home where you can tell us the adventures & lessons of foreign places.

luv ya!

Bethany, I know you probably won't read this while you're gone, but I thought the pictures were so precious of you & Charissa and you & Matthias. Just so precious and absolutely capture the moment. Somebody did a great job capturinig those moments in time. :) You'll probably be looking at those pictures a lot while you're gone. :)

Bethany,
You don't know me but I wanted to tell you what a blessing it is to read your blog. I found it while on YLCF, I wanted to tell you that I will be praying for you while you are serving the Lord in China. I will be leaving the end of the summer to teach some missionary children in Germany, so it was a blessing to hear of someone else serving the Lord in teaching too. I also thouroughly enjoy looking at your photography. I love taking pictures of God's creation. The Lord bless you as you serve Him in China!
Christ's Child,
Anna D.
