Going back to China.....

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!

What an awesome thing to get to do!! Please keep me in mind if you do it again in future years. I am hopeful that we will be traveling to China for Da Xin around June, but I dream of doing this one day.

I will keep you in my prayers! I can't wait to follow your '09 blog.

Becki,
This sounds so great!! My heart is there too! We saw about 20 babies in cribs at Langfang under a year. I think they were all special needs. They were two to a crib; just staring up in a dark room, with no window. They are getting a new orphanage soon though- it should be a better facility.
Chayah's leg will get surgery in the next two months- we pray it is successful!
Blessings,
Caroline

I was very excited to see your blog and look at the pictures from your trip last June. Our daughter is from the same orphanage and would have been about 4 1/2 months old when you were there. I was wondering if you could e-mail me or check out my blog to see if you happen to remember or have pictures of our baby? My blog is www.meetingmayaa.blogspot.com. My e-mail address is ldatkinson@mts.net. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon!
