Our plane runneth over

I don't even know where to begin. Tonight Dave came home and he looked like he had been crying. I was alarmed at first that something terrible had happened as you know.. men aren't suppost to cry..but then, I just about joined in w/ the tear fest once I heard the reason.

For many weeks we have slowly began to gather some basic medical supplies for an orphanage in Northern China that cares for critically ill and dying babies and children who have been abandoned. They exhaust every avenue in an attempt to save even the most fragile and "hopeless" of cases.

Yesterday and today, just hours before we depart, we were overwhelmed by the generosity of some local pharmacists. The back of our mini van is now full of critical medical needs to deliver to this most special organization. We are in total awe of God's provision. When we spoke with our China friends and told them about these donations, they informed us they were down to the last 2 colostomy bags. (Hope we have a great tailwind!! :) :)

Then, the next incredible development is that United Airlines working w/ us to get it all there and is allowing us to transport it all AT NO COST!! This is Huge!! United could not have been more helpful and we are incredibly grateful for their assistance.

T minus 1.5 days..
