If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Leaving For China!

Tomorrow (very early) I will be leaving for China to work with an organization called Bring Me Hope.  They offer a summer camp for orphans and use volunteers to partner with the children and bless them during that week.  My good friend, Jamie, will be traveling with me and we are very excited to see what God has planned for this week.

Here are some ways you can pray if you think of us while we are gone:

1. Pray that we make all of our flights and transitions without difficulty.  We have a very short connection in New Jersey.

2. Pray for safety and good health for our team in China and our families back home.

3. Pray that we would lay down our expectations and preferences and exchange them for God's will for this week.

4.  Pray that God will speak clearly to us during the week regarding His will for our future involvement in China and for our involvement with the kids of BMH.

I am sure there will more requests as we go but right now I just can't seem to think clearly.  Signing off now to go kiss on my babies before I have to go.
