Thankful Thursday

Today is a perfect day to do Thankful Thursday. Today is the 2 year anniversary of when God gave us our land. We know this isn't "our" land but God's land but we are so thankful that he is letting us use it. We are praying very, very hard now that God would sell our house so that we can start building on the land.

We both feel very strongly that God has a purpose for that land and we are ready to be there and to do whatever it is God wants us to on that land. If you didn't read the story of our land before you can click here.

One other thing I am thankful for today is that one year ago today I was finishing packing our bags. Dropping off our 2 precious children and saying the hardest goodbyes ever (I can't even begin to tell you how hard it is to leave your kids and go to the other side of the world unless you have done it). One year ago today was the last night we would be in our home only having two children. We would soon be on our way to our son. I can't believe a year has gone by even though it's hard to think it's just been a year since we have been in Ch*na.

PS We are having an Open House on Sunday. Would you pray with us that God would have the right people come to buy our house?

Thank you my friends!!!
