It's me - over here in China

Recommended Posts

My husband and I have been in China since August of 2006. First with the Kennedy Center for Internationals Studies at BYU with the China Teachers Program (CTP) for two years, teaching in Qingdao at Ocean University of China.

Upon arriving home we received a call to return to China, this time for 23 months as Humanitarian Volunteers. We arrived back in China in February of 2009.

As LDS Charities representatives working with a local charity here, The All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), is a lot of fun. The ACWF has asked that we teach at the China Women's University, which has 4,000 girls and 39 boys. Which is great! Most senior couples when they elect to serve have to pay for their own "M" - we don't because the university provides us with an apartment, maid service to clean every week and change the sheets!, and we receive a wage to teach - which is sufficient for us to live off one income and bank the other! Can't beat that with a stick!!

So, we are here in Beijing teaching, serving, NO PROSELYTING, active OR passive - PERIOD!!!

But there are those that have a spark in their eyes! And there are those that have dull eyes.

Life is absolutely wonderful!!!!

Oh, we have 7 grown children, 15 grandchildren. . . . and they all support us and cheer us on!! How can we lose?
