Day 7 {Blessings}

I'm reallllllly not feeling good tonight so this is going to be short. (please pray my stomach calms down!!!)
Today was our last full day.

We were able to spend the money that many of you gave to me and our team to bless the socks off these kids!

All total we purchased:

65 large cans of high-calorie formula
10 boxes of diapers
20 pairs of shoes
50 packs of underwear
3 packs of hangers to hang clothes to dry
PILES of clothing
2 new basketballs
4 new packs of sand toys for the sand box

Tomorrow is going to be like Christmas morning up in there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The words "thank you" don't even do this justice. We prayed to be able to love, give and share as deep and as wide as we could in 4.5 days. I believe we have.

As I looked out over this city I asked the Lord to take our small offering this week, and multiply it like the little boys lunch. That's something we've prayed consistently this week...Lord, just use what we have, small as it seems at times, and do a mighty work.

 Seriously. What's a blog without him? 

 $800 (4600 yuan) worth of formula for the BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Tomorrow morning we say goodbye.
It's not going to be easy or pretty.
The kids favorite song we sang for them this week was "Deep & Wide"
And that's our prayer for these people, as we have loved deep and wide....

Ephesians 3:18
"I pray that you....may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how WIDE and long, and high and DEEP is the love of Christ.."

Goodnight from southern China
