back to reality...

Vacation is over.  It was so wonderful though!  I enjoyed spending time with my parents and Grandma and it was really a huge blessing to be able to.  It was just an added bonus that I got to travel all over China at the same time!  I am so incredibly blessed to have an amazing family who I know will always love and support me no matter what, even when it means I am half a world away.  Check out the pics from the rest of the trip!  http://picasaweb.google.com/a.b.twarek/ChinaWithMyFamily#

In other news...we are starting a new session!  May brings session 36 and we have about 230 students waiting for us!  I am facilitating the amazing class A and I am super excited to meet my students and form relationships with them!  I can only imagine what God has in store for this month and and I humbled to continue to be a part of it.

My family is here!

My mom, dad, and grandma arrived last Sunday and it has been wonderful having them in China with me!  We started out in Beijing seeing all the sites and then left to go on a 5 day cruise of the Yangtze River.  It has been an awesome trip so far!  We are currently in Xian and saw the Terracotta Warriors today.  Check out the pictures from the first part of the trip!
