✪ It was good to get out of the city for a couple of days during the Chinese holiday. We traveled about an hour outside of the city and found some interesting places and a nice place to rest.
✪ We had a good time Sunday at bible study. I am excited about getting going again this week. Everyone should be back in town from traveling.
