Sept. 17 - Nanjing

We ate dinner last night - PAPA JOHN'S!!!!! - with our travelmates, the Danielson's, and then let the kids play for a bit. They tossed a beach ball back and forth and Gabe had great fun - Jada, on the other hand, is so reserved out in public - she hardly talks at all in front of other people and really only ran for the ball when Gabe wasn't around. It is very interesting to watch.
Today we visited the Brocade Museum in Nanjing. This is an amazing art to watch and there aren't many people left that can actually run these looms.

Oh yes, while we were at the Brocade museum, they had a fashion show and asked me to be in it!! RIGHT!! Well they did actually have a fashion show, the director of the museum came and sat by us and asked our guide if we'd like our picture taken - we weren't so sure about this - but we went and posed anyway. I felt a little underdressed!
Part of the wall built around Nanjing - wish we would have had time to see more of this wall, but we have run out of time in Nanjing. We leave tomorrow afternoon for Guangzhou - we are excited to move on as it's rained EVERY DAY here and hasn't made for many fun outings.

We would ask you to pray for us - now Jess, our travel partner's wife, is sick. We were hoping Gabe had something that would stick to only him, but now that Jess has it too - we are thinking it could easy be a bug. Joe and I have been on antibiotics the whole trip, but not sure it is something that will be affected by anitbiotics. Pray that Jess feels better soon and that NONE of the rest of us get it - we were trying so hard to be careful around little Gabe when he was sick, but that is hard to do when you are in a van together all day!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
