Beautiful Day

A glimpse from Beijing

A very close friend of mine who's an American missionary just emailed me this letter, they had an "incident" a little while ago which result the following. I'd just copy his letter here:


If you remember as a result of the bust a few months ago Abbie was taken away from the family of five next door, in process of adopting her, they had her for a year. This was BIG!

Today we went to get her, me and the whole family...It had been about two months or so with no visiting privledges. It was extremely heavy. I was the first one to see her come through the door...she was absolutley gray, it seemed there was no life in her. She didn't know any of us and did not want to be with us, shaking her head no!...it was a total shock!! I was very scared for her! The kids were crying, the mom was crying. Finally the mom took her and held her, I started praying that the Holy Spirit would restore her to this family and they started singing some familiar songs from priviously. In about ten minutes she started responding...in 30min she was totally back!!! Whew!!

As they were all trying to deal with all this I noticed a little girl standing at the door way with one of the ladies...I went over and knelt down to speak to her, to touch her...she was one of the most beautiful little girls I've ever seen. I wanted to take her...she was so beautiful.I said a few things to her, she was a little older than Abbie..maybe she was three and a half, four. I then returned to the family I was with as they were signing papers.

Later as we all went into the hall way I saw this little girl again. She was smiling at us, it was then that I found out that her and Abbie had become close friends. This hit me so hard!! Abbie was coming with us, but she had to stay. I couldn't take it. I went out to my car and left. I sang and cried to Jesus alot of the way back to Beijing, its all up to Him. So many of these children. Its all from the fall. I hope to pray for this little girl the rest of my life. I will never see her again. I guess its good to be a basket case at the moment. I am glad I have these feelings!

Abbies home though and thats good! Its bitter sweet.

Love
????
