Loving the Least in China

"And the King will answer them,
 ‘Truly, I say to you, 
as you did it to one of the least of these 
my brothers, you did it to me.’"
Matthew 25:40

Tomorrow we go.  After months and months of planning, preparing, praying, we are finally going to China.  It hardly seems possible.  We will finally see these little face that we have prayed for.  We will finally hold and love and pray over these little ones who are the least of the least.  The ones that the world has forgotten, but that the Lord calls "hidden treasures."

We go with humble hearts, hoping to make a difference, but knowing that it will be us most changed.  

And that is our prayer.

"Lord, break our hearts.  May we never be the same.  May we experience You in such a way that we long for You more and more.  May we come back and be a voice for those who have no voice.  May we be willing to give up our comforts to provide for the least."

We are so very grateful for this high and holy privilege of loving the least, of being His hands and feet, of ministering to Jesus Himself in caring for these hidden treasures.

Please pray for our team.  The enemy is fighting so hard against us and our families, but he will not defeat us.  We go in the name of Jesus, who already has the victory!  

Here are some specific things you can pray for:
*Traveling mercies
*Safe arrival of our luggage!
*Good health
*Our husbands/family back home
*Team unity
*Servant's hearts
*Opportunities to share Christ
*Strength physically. spiritually, emotionally
*Christ's love to radiate from us
*Lasting heart changes for our team
*Many children to be cared for and adopted because of this trip!

I also hope to update this personal blog as well during the trip!

It truly has taken a multitude of people to get us to China, and we are so very grateful to each one of you who has given, prayed and supported us.  May the Lord return the blessing to you a hundred fold!
