Testing Testing one, two.

So much has happened in the last few weeks leading up to the moment we as a family now find ourselves in. We all make comments now and then about how it just doesn't seem real that we are just a few short days from leaving for China.
We have almost everything lined up and ready to go. Doing a test post to my aunt who is so sweet to post for us due to blog spot being banned in China was the next thing on my to-do list.
I also had a dear friend show up on our doorstep today with her supplies ready to help me leave a clean house. The same friend had us come to their church with them tonight where the priest sent us off with a beautiful traveler prayer and mercy's in our meeting Gavin.
We have a full day planned on Sunday where we will be covered in prayer yet again by friends and family alike. We are overwhelmed with all the support we have been shown in this process and appreciate every prayer said on our behalf.
Blessings from home, but not for long.

Wow! The time has come! I'll be praying for you guys, but especially Gavin's heart so that he will be prepared for your family, and his heart will be immediately knit with yours. This was a prayer we prayed constantly for months for Evan, and the Lord clearly answered it. He's so good!

Congratulations!!! It's time! WOO HOO!!!!

I cannot wait to follow your journey. The day is really here! You are leaving, and coming back with Gavin. Be blessed, and I hope you have a wonderful trip.

SOOOOOOOOOO excited for you!! We're not far behind. We leave next Tuesday, so maybe we'll cross paths in GZ?! In anycase, know that you remain in my thoughts and prayers for a safe, healthy and blessed trip!
