Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Other than the fact that we miss our two little ones badly, we had a great day.  Mina is really warming up to Marc which is great.  We toured the Chen family temple today which was pretty neat.  The architecture and carvings are amazing.  It was so cute, a group of high school girls approached "C" and wanted to get their picture taken with him.  They all took turns posing a giggling and I think I actually saw his head double in size.  He has had quite a few comments, people have asked if he is a movie star,  I am not sure he ever wants to leave China... he really is liking it here aside from all the attention, he loves the food and the culture as well.  We took a long walk to the Pearl Market, and went through the "herb market" & pet market on the way... We saw some of the most amazing and unusual things!  I wish I could post 100 pictures to show you.  I can't wait to make my scrapbook!  We had a very interesting dinner, roast pigeon.  It was pretty good. Taste like a little tough roast chicken... Check out Mina sporting the chopsticks!  Too cute.  I really want to take a Mandarin Cooking Class when we get back (you know with all my free time). By the way, thank you all for leaving comments.  It really warms our hearts to know how much support and prayers we have!  We are blessed.

Glad everything is going so well. You'll be home hugging those babies before you know a family of 6! Be safe.

I hope that I get to see that Scrapbook soon. Give me a call if you need anything!! :) I'm loving reading everything that you've been writing. She will love this when she is older.

Love you lots!

Amy, that picture of Mina with the chopsticks is so cute! Love the story about the high school girls! Glad to see that Mina is warming up to Marc. My guess is she will still be a mommy's girl for awhile anyway. I should know, I have two that have never transitioned to being daddy's girls.

Love reading this every day. Keep the pictures coming! She is so precious. We can't wait to have you back. Missed you at LG tonight, but kept you all in our ongoing prayers for a safe return.
