Day 3 at Chenzhou

the smell…if you have ever been to China you know what I mean
Hard beds
Warm drinks…no ice and no cold drinks
People everywhere
CRAZY driving
Sick kids with green snot running out of their noses and onto you
KIds grabbing at you and anything that is yours
Severe special needs kids rocking back and forth or drooling or grunting
Babies that are blue
Babies that weigh 4 lbs
Dirty clothes
smelly kids
Bodily secretions on you
Little bodies filled with scars, scratches, bruises and sores
Heart-ache that wakes you up in the middle of the night
Little dirty faces that haunt you
Praying these dirty little faces fight for life
The feeling of overwhelming helplessness
Missing your brown-eyed babies….and blue -eyed boy at home….tremendously
But…….knowing God has placed you here, amidst all of this, and feeling HIs presence as you pray over them and for them
Wanting to be nowhere else at the moment
