So many little time--The TAs

In China we had so many amazing people to get to know: Quality people, people you just want to keep spending time with and laughing with. So, let me tell you about a few of my Chinese friends.

Sunny--sweet tempered, quiet, and loves Jesus. Sunny was a smiling face when I got to share my testimony at "youth group" in the Chinese church. She came to our TA Bible Study and shared her heart and challenges.

Coco--ordered me tea by the river one night...sweet believer and fun to be with. She came to TA Bible study too--it was great to hear her share. Her favorite color is Red. I especially enjoyed her and Bessie arguing about Chengdu food vs. ZiGong food and which was best. Long Chao Shou--capped off one of my most fun memories of the trip.

Fred--the man with the megaphone. Fred translated for me at "youth group", and I was so proud considering I talked about a miscarriage. He got it all across for me. He was our activities man...and I can still hear him yelling "Mr. Fox, Mr. Fox"

Kiko--her smiling face was so terrific to see and she had so much fun hanging with the girls. I especially remember sharing music together on the bus--looking for some songs we could both sing to Jesus.

Barbie--sweet friend who took me shopping when I was too tired to make any sense of money our first day in China. We hung out at the dinosaur museum and lots of other times too. Enjoyed eating at a Western restaurant in a private room just for our group--the Good Wood! Good times.

Teddy--she's a, really, she is so much fun! She reminded me that others of my friends had been where I China loving students (and TAs). Teddy has such a warm, vibrant personality and her use of slang gives me so many smiles! Golden friendship! Since Teddy is in the States now for school, we got to talk about some of those important things a girl needs to know when she moves across the world. Praying I get to see her soon!

There were more TAs...and I got to know them here and there. I wish I had more to tell you about each of them...I'm sure I missed some special moments we shared. I love how God brings people into your life, and I pray that I see them again!
