Thank you so much for the specifics! They are so helpful!
Stephanie, I will definitely be praying for you, especially as y'all start winding back down, getting ready to come home. Reading about your deep compassion and love for the kid's and your teammates is so motivating! I know that you deserve the title "Momma".

"For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart." Phil. 1:7-8a

Oh, I am so excited to see y'all in China and back home! (And also equally sad that I won't see you, Chance and Heather)
My...these weeks and days have gone so slow, yet so fast! (I know fast for y'all)
Continue to press on team! Praying for strength, especially here at the end. I mean, you do have the God of the entire universe on your team, or better, you are on the God of the entire universe's team. :)
Much love!

"For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it. In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words;and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God's elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us." Romans 8:24-34
