Taiyuan Arrival

We've arrived! To the welcome of new sights, sounds, and smells, our weary team has officially settled in to Taiyuan! Now we are becoming acquainted with our surroundings, catching up with our jet-leg, and thoroughly enjoying the friendly people and new culture.

Bethany has posted a more thorough update here, complete with some of the great pictures she's been busy capturing. Thank you for your prayers and we look forward to keeping you up to date!

"For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness,
who has shone in our hearts
to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God
in the face of Jesus Christ." 2 Cor 4:6
