I’ve been to China twice in the past 4 months and have yet to share much about it. I hope to do a series of posts and create a video to really share what we did. In the meantime, I will share small pieces of China via photos at the end of my posts.
This picture: I took it in China in June to remind me to pray for the orphans that sleep on these sheets at night.
