May 1 is International Labor Day. It is a national holiday in China, and begins a "golden week" in China where students are out of school and most workers have 7 days holiday. Trains, planes, buses, and cars are loaded with Chinese traveling to spots of interest or visiting family. Lady has the week off from school. We need to rest up from our vacations! Prices are higher during this time, and public transportation is SO crowded!
Now that I am back from my vacation I can post some photos from some of our Easter activities. We were very busy! Five friends came from GA to spend Easter with us. The visited all of Lady's classes and English Corners. The students asked them about Easter, so they told them the Story. We had a party at my house for children. We have one every Christmas and Easter for neighbors and Lady's friends. The children love to come to Lady's house for one of our parties. Some grown-ups came, too. Before Lady started explaining these holidays to them these children had no clue what they were all about. They didn't know that God loves them so much. But now, some of the children can answer Lady's questions about who Jesus is. They have been listening! We want them to know that Jesus loves them very much.
Next week is my Adoption Day Party! I will have been with Lady two years. She doesn't know when my birthday is, so we have a party on my Adoption Day, May 10. We invite my closest friends to come play with me and eat treats. I'll have Lady take some photos and post them for you. I can't believe it has been two years! I've been a busy little dog!
