WELCOME TO LEEMINGVILLE!
"What God the Father considers to be pure and genuine religion is this: to take care of the orphans and widows in their suffering and to keep oneself from being corrupted by the world." James 1:27

Off to Urumqi
It is probably due to the heavy rain the day before we arrived but I was expecting to be choking from smog. Hasn't been too bad out. Learned quickly yesterday that even if the pedestrian light is on that turning traffic still have the right of way! Having breakfast at our hotel in downtown Beijing overlooking one of the streets. Still hard to believe we are here. We fly out to where Anna is in a few hours although we won't see her until tomorrow. Again, it's starting to sink in about what we are doing. Anna is quickly moving from an abstract concept to reality. God is giving us an extreme responsibility to raise this child as our own and we are both contemplative and very excited about it all.
