Day 9- Min Temple and Travel to Guangzhou

1 06 2013

The Min Temple was yet another building with exquisite architecture and beautiful scenery but all designed and created for a false god. It is hard for me to walk through these buildings without quoting scripture in my mind.  It makes me so thankful for the freedom I have in Christ. My prayers are continually for the lost people of this country.

Our flight was very exciting because it was Levi’s first flight. He was so brave considering he was experiencing so much at one time. He sat quietly and looked out the window with Douglas. He enjoyed seeing the plane soaring above the clouds. When they served dinner, it was beef noodles and our boy was so happy! He ate hardily and wanted more. Douglas and I both choose not to eat our meal but were fearful for Levi to eat too much at one time.

We arrived quickly at Guangzhou Airport. Our guide, Elvin, was right there to meet us with a sign that said…”Huber Family- Bay Area Adoption”! It was so nice to be greeted by a smiling face. He then informed us that we were waiting for another family to arrive. It is so nice to meet other adoptive families. It’s just nice to talk to others that understand the call and the impact it makes on your life. It’s also great to glean information from others’ experience. Douglas and I had to laugh at being called veterans in the adoption community. We feel so unworthy of that because we know so many families that have been doing this longer and with many more children that we are. We only hope to bring God glory in our journey to build our family!

When we arrived at the Garden Hotel, we were amazed. We WERE totally White Swan people in the past! We had to choose another hotel due to remodeling. But this place is amazing. It’s the nicest hotel we have ever seen! AMAZING, folks!  We checked-in the room and fell in the bed!

Levi is doing better each day. He is learning more and adjusting to all the new things he sees and hears. He’s defiantly over-loaded! He has a long journey ahead….but he has a family that loves him! We know that love will go a long way!

Psalm 68:5-6 –

Father to the fatherless, defender of widows-
this is God, whose dwelling is holy.
God places the lonely in families;
he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.
But he makes the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land
