Church, Tian'anmn Square and The Forbidden City

This will be a quick post. We are about to start packing up our
suitcases because tomorrow we fly to Gaungzhou and meet Maggie !! Only
ONE more sleep. It doesn't seem real.
We startd the day at a church service for non-China residents. We had
to bring a copy of our passport to the church to show that we are not
Chinese citizens. The church rents out a Chinese theatre and it was
very nice. We really enjoyed the praise and worship and the message -
very good !
Next, we went to The Olympic Birds Nest where some of the Olympic
games were held. Pretty cool ! Then, we went to eat at another
western Chinese restaurant. After that, we got back on the bus and
headed to Tian'anmn Square and The Forbidden City. We saw some
beautiful Chinese jewelry from One of the Dynasties ( I am tired and
can't remember which one !). The most interesting thing was we saw
the well where The Dragon Lady
( one of the China Empress') threw a Concubine in. Crazy.
The weather was a little colder today and we froze again. I am
getting real good at layering and bundling up and ready for a much
sunnier and warmer Gaungzhou ! We leave at 5:30 AM to go to the
airport and I am ready !
Please be in prayer for us and Maggie as her world as she knows it
will be turned upside down - for the Better - but she will not know
what is going on.
Please e mail us and say hi - we love getting all the e mails and
calls on the Majic Jack. We might not return your call for a while,
but it is so nice to hear everyone's voice. I can't read the Blogger
comments, so I will have to read them all when we get home.
