Ni hao China!

Hey everybody! I have been quite a horrible blogger lately, sorry! We have a lot of things going on in our house lately!
I am VERY excited about this in particular though. I just sent off my application today and I am really hoping they accept me! I will post when I hear back from them. This trip sounds so awesome and would be an amazing opportunity! I have always wanted to go to China and it looks like I might be getting my chance! Please pray that I get to go! I will have to raise about $2,700 for the trip but with God, all things are possible!

Wow- how exciting! I hope you get accepted- I would love to hear all about it! I might have to keep that in mind for next summer. I am looking into another organization to travel with. But... I have my heart set on Ethiopia,and it is proving to be much more difficult than I had though to find a group to go with!

This sounds wonderful, I really hope it works out. I plan on calling your momma soon - I feel like I haven't talk to you guys in forever! About the package, we gave them to Travis and Joanna but didn't show them which one was for her or say "This is for Tigist" or anything. We gave them the bag and said it was things from your guys to be distributed to the older boys and your birthmother. Hope that helps! SO SORRY there was a mixup. Love ya guys.

Yes, I was able to get those pictures directly to Belay. He said he would take care of getting them to her.
