We started our Sunday off right by worshipping on Shamian Island. It was a most powerful and moving experience. It definitely made me think of how heaven will be!! The service was in Mandarin & English. There were mostly Chinese people worshipping along with a few other adoptive families. We had the chance to talk with a few of our Chinese sisters & brothers in Christ - wonderful time sharing the love of the Father among people of another country and culture.
I was in tears from the moment we arrived at the church. Katie thought that was hysterical- thus the close up- thanks KT!
We did not find a red couch at the White Swan Hotel this time but we did find a pink chair! We made this our new tradition. Lucy Rose was not liking the photo session so our pictures are not very good.
Katie pretended to be a model - which is the current trend for Shamian Island - lots of models & photographers all around the island. We had fun despite the incredible heat & humidity!
Katie was a star today - lots of girls & guys asked to have their picture made with her. She had so much fun talking with all of these girls.
Lucy Rose's first taste of ice cream. She definitely was not used to the cold temperature. It was mango ice cream which was quite tasty.

Thanks Mrs. Lynne for my adorable dress : ).
Making our way back to the hotel after spending all day on the island.
Lucy Rose and I ate dinner alone as Katie has made a new friend from South Dakota & they were having fun at the pool. This little girl ate chicken, broccoli, saltines, & nachos. Said no thanks to the fruit again. Baby steps!
