I'm so excited about going to China that i could just pop. However, there is much to do! The Tour wrapped up this weekend. And what an awesome tour it was. What an honor to get to travel the country encouraging Believers and sharing the Gospel with those who don't know Christ yet! God did some great things and we have been greatly encouraged by the letters and emails from concert go-ers!
We have done 82 concerts since the tour began last September. The first half of the tour was with Matt Redman, and the last half of the tour was with Caleb(SCC's boys), Kutless, and 10th Avenue North. We traveled about 81,000 miles in 5 buses and 2 semi-trucks with 52 people(with more than 6 kids) to 38 states plus one concert in Canada. There were about 350,000 people that attended and helped us sponsor more than 10,000 children for World Vision. Wahoo!! Go God!!!
And now I am turning the page to a new chapter! Our JOURNEY to HOPE! ! !
I was thrilled to find 13 new pictures of Hope in my inbox early this morning! How cool is that?!! We had mailed a disposable camera to her orphanage a month ago and today was the Fruit of that investment!! New pic posted soon.
God is so Good!
Today was spent trying my best to get school stuff wrapped up with the kids and then spent the afternoon with Susan Dose (my assistant) trying to find all of my adoption travel documents. It was a bit crazy. Its been a 3.5 yr long process and I can't believe the culmination of all this paperwork and paperchasing is almost here.
I'm trying my best to be a good steward of my time and yet there is much to do. Still trying to work on some details for the Crowns Concerts in the Summer. Also need to pack. And then there was that trip to Toys R Us last night. (That was fun!) Praying for Productivity tonight!
Thank you for your prayers.
Clinging to this promise:
"Those who HOPE in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31
