Sunday, February 11: Our trip to China was very positive. We had a great time with Mark and Patty and got an opportunity to visit the Panda preserve. It was impressive. We met with 8 good leaders and discussed Pathways. They are very interested and want to start perhaps as soon as April. They are concerned about how they will multiply. The Chinese culture and the history of the church makes it hard for pastors to work together outside their established groups. This will be a significant prayer issue.
We have been home now for 6 days and are still struggling with jet lag. We were not able to use our diet plan that mitigates jet lag and are really paying the price this time. Hopefully over the next week we will return to normal sleep and feel better.
