Lots of Smiles and Lots of Shoes !

Maggie gave us bunches and bunches of smiles and laughter today. She
really opened up. Her favorite thing to do is grab my finger and pull
her self up to a standing postion. She thinks it is a game and we
love to play it with her - over and over. Chuck can really get her
laughing too by tickling her tummy. Maggie loves her daddy so much !
We had a great time on the island today walking around and visiting
the shops. I got Maggie just a couple of shoes - he he !! They are
all different sizes and were so cheap. It was really fun ! We also
ate at Lucy's and it was so yummy. The island is beautiful and reminds
me of Chrarleston. We saw a lot of beautiful Chinese brides getting
their picture made in front of the big trees and iron gates.
We met up with the other families tonight and celebrated New Years Day
with a Cantonese dinner. We also celebrated Ava's, a sweet little
girl in our group, first birthday tonight. Please pray for one of the
families here. The husband had to fly home Wed. and immediatly went
to surgery. It has ben difficult for the wife, Amy, to be here with
her new son and not know how her husband is doing. We are beleiving
with her that her husband will be doing better soon and that she can
get home quickly.
