I REALLY mean it...leaving in 3 days

Helene and I are just coming out of a 10 day silent retreat: Centering Prayer. For my part, I'm afraid that I've been "centering" around packing, baggage size and the recurring fear of getting lost on a street in Bejing---I've made Helene promise to stay by my side...not enough distraction re--the coming of the reign of God.
Soon, I hope this will all become more interesting!

Ready.Set.Going East

This is a whole new deal for us.Not only the trip to CHINA but the BLOG too! Helene and Christian will follow our fearless leader, Elizabeth to the Far, Far East. Our pre-departure meeting is set for Wednesday 18 May. The time is short before our June 6th departure--or should I say "adventure."
