It has become a tradition for us to go away every President's Day weekend. We usually end up at our favorite beach town in Michigan.
Here are a few pics from our weekend away....

I know I have mentioned many times how much my heart is in China. Last year, if you followed my blog, you saw that I had the opportunity to go to China on a missions trip through Visiting Orphans. You might have even followed our trip on our trip blog.
This year I have an amazing opportunity to co-lead a team back to the same orphanage in Heng Feng! I am so excited to go back. I know we were able to make a difference for the orphanage, and especially for the nannies there, with the financial contribution that we made. We were able to provide for (among other things), solar panels to put on the roofs so that the nannies could take warm showers. Can you imagine? The littlest things that we take for granted......
We still have room on our team, though time is running short. If you would be interested in going with us this year, please leave me a comment with your e-mail address so I can get more info to you. You can also read a little more about last years trip, and this years plans if you go to www.visitingorphans.org click on the China trips and then the Heng Feng 2009 trip.
I'll be sure to keep you posted on our trip and blog this year. We leave June 5th and return home the 16th. Above all else, I would appreciate your prayers!
