China. That about sums up my life. My husband’s roots run deep as a southern boy from Tennessee. Yet, he spent several years of his childhood in Beijing, China with his family. He speaks fluent mandarin and dreams about the exotic food. Since meeting him, my life has revolved around China. While living in Canada we were surrounded by Chinese friends. We spent two years of our lives planning our move to China. Now we’re here and I’m catching up on the culture, language and charm of this place.
I know I’ll hit hard times. I know I won’t always understand the people. I know it will be years of adjusting. I also know God will see me through and make it wonderful.
I’m excited about the many opportunities. I’m excited to learn another language. I’m excited to raise my kids in a different culture with the same God. We cannot do what we need to do without God’s help. With his help, however, our life will be beyond imagining.
