Just a quick update to say that I made it safe and sound to China!! I arrived in Sunday morning to Beijing and was met at the airport by a friend and taken to where I will be volunteering most of the summer! On Sunday I got to meet the other summer staffers I will be working with, and hang out with some friends too!
Monday we started orientation, learning about what we will be doing and being trained in on how we will do it! That evening we also had a great Chinese meal! This week will be a slower start as wel all adjust to life here so some orientation and training every day.
Today (Tuesday) we got to teach at a local middle school (ages 12-15) which was a fun experience! We then got a quick tour of the foster home (for the benefit of newbies) and some background and training as to what we can/can't do in the foster home. It takes a lot to keep this home running so well!
Many more exciting things to come this summer!! Thanks for praying for our team.
Will post some photos when I can! In the meantime keep an eye on the foster home blog.
