Silk Market... almost!

So last time we were in Chungua we had a nice pleasant stroll through the Silk Market with Jacob, looking at the silk worms producing their cocoon's and browsing through the store looking at the clothing. We though Joel and Jack would just love to see that too. So, after a morning in Tienanmen Square and early afternoon in the Hotel Pool, we deceided to take TWO cabs to the silk market. Armed with notes from the Hotel Service desk Jacob, Libi, Joel and I hopped into the first cab. We traveled about minutes and then were let out on the other side of the street from the Market. We waited for a bit and then assumed that Grandma, Amy and Jack must have been let out in front of the market. We made the trek under the street and arrived in the front of a completely chaotic 5 story store. No Arnolds in sight. I hand Libi to Jacob, then Joel and I go outside for a quick peak to see if they are outside. Nope!

Back into the store, Jacob hands Libi to me and says I think she may have pooped. What an understatement. I look at my arms and I am covered in poop. No diaper bag, that was in the car with mom. She is busting out all over. We walk out to the street jump back in the cab and head to the hotel. Half way home the cabbie discretely rolls his window down. (mind you it is 29 degrees outside.) What an afternoon! Brad Stoller - I hope you are reading this.

Now we are just laying down, praying that Libi will sleep some tonight. We leave for Zhengzhou at 10:00 tomorrow.


  1. Mark cracked up ,Brad!! I am SURE it was out of sympathy!!

    Well... did you find each other?

    Praying Lil Miss Libi Faith rests well.. praying this verse over her..."The LORD your God is with you; he is mighty to save. He will take GREAT delight in you, he will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."

    Much LOVE... from across the globe and 5 doors down!

  2. God is so faithful just as we knew He would be. We are so excited you are there and can't wait to see all God has planned for you.
    It was awsome to get your Christmas card and know the next time we see you Haddie will be with all of us in person and not just a beatiful face on a card.

    We will pray for a deep, refreshing sleep for ya'll. "In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety." I am amazed that as our Father gives you rest and watches over you He is at the same time watching over sweet Haddie, giving her rest as He waits to unite her with her forever family. His eyes are always on us. We are praying for you, friends.
