Alex’s update from China – August 13

Big day!  I played with the kids on the outside playground in the morning.  There was one particularly cute little girl, who had had her cleft lip repaired.  She was such a blast to play with on the big playground obstacle course.  Before leaving for the airport, I got to meet a mother and her daughter who were volunteering at New Hope.  I found out that the mother was from Hangzhou, where I was born!  She was very nice and offered to help show me around Hangzhou if I ever visit.  We took off for Maria’s Big House of Hope in Luoyang  in the evening.   We left for the airport around 2:00 pm.  It was startling to see all the suitcases of medical equipment that we were bringing.  There were around 32 suitcases full of stuff!  We arrived in Luoyang around 9:00 pm and got to Maria’s Big House around 9:30 pm.  At first sight, I was amazed to see how great of a facility this place is.  There are over 130 kids who are getting treated for a variety of conditions.
