No, not that Queen. My Queen. The former is a new great-grandmother. The latter is headed to China.
She's going with the organization through which we adopted Peanut. And she gets to go to a similar orphanage. In doing so, she'll be spending time with orphans with special needs and getting to teach nannies in the orphanages how to do ongoing care. How cool is that?
For those of you who don't know, the Queen is actually Dr. Queen, having gotten her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from a top-5-in-America PT school after already having earned her MPT from one of the top programs in the state. So yes, she's pretty smart. And awesome. And I'm proud.
So pray for the Queen as she goes, that she'll have ample opportunity to be hands-on in ministry and God would extend both His touch and His healing through her. Pray also for opportunities to share the Gospel with her translator and anyone else who God may bring along.
And you can pray for those who will remain, that it would be peaceful, prayerful, and not seem like too long until she returns.
Thanks to all.
