 Missing home

Our last full day in Nanchang and it couldn't come any sooner! We stay
hot and sweaty since there is no air conditioning in the hotel common
areas- dining room, lobby, hallways- or in any of the local restaurants
or shops. I am missing so much of home. I realized this is the longest
we have gone without going to church worship in several years, and I
yearn to be with a body of believers singing praises to God and hearing
the Word. We don't realize how blessed we are to have 3 services a week
to sustain us. There is a church in Guangzhou that has service in both
Chinese and English that we hope to attend. It is non-denominational,
but the Chinese have to register if they want to attend and then they
can get a Bible. They use the Bible, but they don't preach salvation
through Jesus Christ. I miss communication with my family. I miss my
dog, and Mark and I both have said to Wei-wei, "No, Amy." I miss
vegetables. I miss drinking water and brushing my teeth from the tap.
I dont miss TV, which we haven't watched since leaving home. I miss
having a place for everything and everything in its place- well, most of
the time. Tomorrow is Mikayla's 1st birthday, and we plan a party in
Guangzhou with the 12 other families in our group so stay tuned....
