The following is an update from one of our Storyteller Mission team members currently in China, Suzette Jones. These are excerpts from Suzette's blog. Please keep them all in your prayers as they wrap up their time at America World's partner orphanages.
From our morning bowl of noodles-the best we’ve ever tasted-to an evening full of dance at the park we had a day full of blessings!
Each moment was filled with precious memories that we will treasure for a lifetime. The orphanage director has gone out of his way to make sure we have been well cared for and fed well. After a day of loving on sweet babies, he took us to the park that has a huge statue (sorry, I don’t remember his name) of an emperor who created much of their farming and was well regarded in the early years. Just like most of the parks in China the people all gather and exercise and dance. We took lots of photos and had many taken of us as well.
The best part of our day certainly revolves around loving on precious children, but the friends and relationships that we’ve made on the other side of the world has created a bond of love for a people so dear to our hearts.
