I've been a little busy, too busy to post. China experienced their devastating earthquake on Monday . . . by Monday night I had an E-mail request to come and help (with the same group that I went with to Pakistan). It has been a roller coaster time since . . . thinking about packing, buying a few supplies (like a solar panel-something that would have come in handy in Pakistan) recruiting other workers (including a Chinese doctor) etc. Last night we heard, officially,from the Chinese government that we would not be allowed to come right now because they want to handle the crisis themselves. So it is waiting and seeing. With the death toll going up, they may change their minds.
I'll be back when things slow down.
