James 1:27 " Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. "

Today we were informed by our agency that we have our Travel Approval! We now have to request an appointment at the US Consulate. We are requesting one the week of September 12 or the 19th. Depending on which appointment we get we will either leave for China on August 31st or September 8th. We should know more about our itinerary by the first of next week, but either way we will be hugging Carsen for the first time in 2 or 3 weeks!
