Sundays are good days. They start off with some fellowship with the foreigner crew, finding some time for English corner, and then typically end with some games or more fellowship with foreigners. It’s a time to pour into each other, be refueled, and rest.
I have been slacking on the blog-front lately, so I have random pictures from this random life that I’m going to share with you. You get to meet “the crew.”
This is Trish, my classmate from Australia, and our teacher, XieLaoShi after class one day.
My English corner girls at one of XiaoWu’s soccer tournaments. So much love for these young ladies. Their English names are Kate, Victory, Rita, Anna, and Lilly.
Meet Andrew & XiaoWu. Andrew had never been to Karaoke and seeing how it is the have-to-do thing while in China, we had to fix that!
Well, the guys taught me how to make a lamp. My electrician-of-a-dad would be so disappointed in my original lack of knowledge, but so impressed with my new found “wisdom.”
This is XiaoWu and Andrew on the left and Stephen and Jesse on the right.
These are our awesome Chinese Brothers. — Xiao Guan on the left and Lu Shuai on the right. I don’t know the guy in the middle.
This is my roommate Abigail. WangXiang (our other rommate) was not home when we took the picture.
And then there is XiaoYi (directly meaning little one.) just because she’s too cute. Before her minor surgery, she had 11 toes. It breaks my heart that a family felt so trapped by an extra toe that it lead them to abandon their baby girl.
And there ya have it- some of the people that I live life with on a regular basis. Love these folks.
