What have we done....

Welcome John and Sarah!

Our first dinner at Ruby Tuesday's


We've had a great and busy few days. Yesterday morning, John and Sarah woke up ready to explore so we went to TST with Mike while he ran some errands. We introduced them to XTC on Ice and our 'Sunday walk.' We came home and rested a bit and in the evening went to the night market. This was Mike and I's first time to this market and I must say... that I WILL return there. I LOVED it! It was so much better (at least for finding Chinese items) than Stanley at least in my opinion. For dinner we had a Chinese meal of dumplings and bok choy... one of my favorites! I hope they enjoyed it too. Today they helped me clean (hard core clean) the Children's Church room and I'm so very grateful. The air con is broken in that room and the dehumidifier has to be manually emptied so mold grows very quickly. We came home and enjoyed a nice swim in the pool before heading out to CAIS for youthgroup. We have a big day tomorrow so I didn't stay... just dropped them off but it sounds like they had a good time.

I have thoroughly enjoyed talking about HK and it's been fun to realize how much I have learned about this place and the people. They really did their homework on the city and I've been so impressed with the interest they have shared in HK and our ministry here. I also have really appreciated the help they have given me with Isabella. I feel so energized because I'm not having to entertain her by myself all day. Isabella sure is enjoying them too. She won't know what to do when it's just her and me again. LOL

There's been a bit of a hault on the flat hunt... again. But I just keep reminding myself that God is in control and will let us know exactly when He wants too. I just wish it was now.

Sleeping arrangements have been going well and it's actually been quite fun having Izzy in our room. I've always enjoyed taking one last peek at her before I go to bed and having her right next to us makes that so much easier. Here's a picture of something she discovered on Tuesday.. climbing into one of the drawers on the bottom of our bed and resting on the towels. We probably played for about 30 minutes... climbing in and out, throwing the towels out and putting them back in. I'm glad she's easy to entertain.



My brain is fried... can't think of what else I wanted to share so I guess that means it's time to go to bed. Hope you all have a wonderful, exciting day!
