Last church service in China

It has officially begun ... all of the "last" things.  Seeing people and places for the last time.  My eyes fill with tears as it sinks in: we are really leaving Shanghai. 

Yesterday, we attended our last church service.  When people ask me what I will miss about Shanghai, this is one of the biggest things that comes to mind.  We've been SO SO blessed by our church!  It has been truly incredible to worship each week with people from over 60 countries!  We think it has been a small glimpse of heaven -- when we will one day worship with believers from all over the world. 

This week was a baptism Sunday and of the 15 baptisms, 11 countries were represented.  And man, what an awesome feeling of celebration was in the air!  It was a beautiful and a perfect way to end. 

In addition to an amazing service, we got to see Eri from our Bible study group one last time and we got to meet her brand new husband! They just got married on Wednesday!  Congratulations sweet Eri!
