Time flies...

I was going through pictures the other day and realized that is has been a whole year since Rachel and I headed to China! Such a wonderful summer!!

I am so thankful for the opportunity that the Lord gave me to go...the lessons I learned...the friends I made...the things I saw and experienced...the conversations and classes I had...the seeds that were planted...the laughs we shared...the food we ate...the songs we learned...the memories I now treasure...

I hope ya'll don't mind a few more pictures as I reminisce...

At the Great Wall

Such precious, precious faces!

Beautiful scenery

Watermelon on a stick, anyone?

A children's class I taught

Thursday night suppers at our apartment

Wonderful memories with my sister...

"God be merciful to us and bless us, and cause His face to shine upon us -- that Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations. Let the peoples praise You, O God; Let all the peoples praise You!"

Psalms 67:1-3

Psalms 17:7

"Show the WONDER of Your great LOVE..."

The world will never starve for want of wonders,
but only for want of wonder.

Zephaniah 2:3

"Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth...
Seek righteousness, seek humility."

True greatness: serving others for the glory of God.
This is a genuine expression of humility.

It's been almost 3 months since my 'little' brother Andrew left for South Carolina. What a joy to pray for him and his ministry opportunity down there, and yet...we all miss him!

So for the exciting news: we recently heard that he's probably going to make it home for the weekend of the 4th of July!!!!

Can't wait to see you, Andrew!!

A prayer

May Christ reign supreme within me,
in every thought, word, and deed,
in a faith that purifies the heart,
overcomes the world,
works by love,
fastens me to Thee,
and ever clings to the cross.

-The Valley of Vision

In the Master's hand

Shall the clay say to him who forms it,
'What are you making?'

But now, O Lord,
You are our Father.

We are the clay,
and You our potter.

And we are all the work of Your hand.

Isaiah 45:9, 64:8

Psalms 143:8

"Let the morning bring me word of Your unfailing love,
for I have put my trust in You.
Show me the way I should go,
for to You I lift up my soul!"

When your will is God's will,
you will have your will.
-Charles Spurgeon
