Pray for those left behind.

I used to blog all the time…like every day. Then writer’s block struck with a vengeance and I took a break from blogging for a few years. I would write a blog post every now and again but it wasn’t anything like I had been doing.

This year I have gotten back into it. I plan on not posting on the weekends. Because since my children are older now, I don’t have the amount of blog fodder I once had.

But I find myself on a Friday night with nothing better to do than blog. Man that makes me sound rather pathetic.

Tomorrow the family of FullCup embarks on a new adventure. We will go where no one in our families have ever gone before.

Tomorrow the family of FullCup will pick up an 11 year old girl name Yingyuan and she will live with us for the next 4 months. Yingyuan will be attending our local Christian school as an exchange student. We are beyond thrilled that our little homeschooling family was chosen as a host family.

The students (there are 10 with 3 sponsors) have been prayed for. The host families have been prayed for. And that is a good thing. But I think the families left behind also need prayed for. Yingyuan is an only child who lives with her Mother. I can’t imagine, I can’t even begin to wrap my mind around my child being gone for 4  months. I can’t fathom knowing she is half a world away in another country. A country I’ve never been to.

Please pray for Yingyuan, the family of FullCup but please also pray for Yingyuan’s family that was left behind.
