Love to our Guangxi Children on Children's Day 2011

It is that time again...
Children's Day in China!!!!!!!!
I have just loved seeing these photos of our special  girls and sharing in their Celebrations across the Miles. Matthew stayed up late to make sure we had the photos as soon as possible to share in the joy :-)
All the girls around Nanning were invited by QQ to came and join in the fun...and it is great to see here two of our girls from Yizhou, one now studying in Nanning!

 This I LOVE!!!!!!! 
The Banner from last year2010, being updated to this year 2011, by just sticking on some new numbers:-)

And here is this year's team, celebrating together the Hope they have for the future.

 Off to the River to share dinner and talk, carrying the Sky Lanterns for later.....
                                                     The girls sharing fun with GG Staff
 and enjoying dinner

 Delighted that this girl has earned her own money by helping to illustrate the Ten Blazing Suns Book , 
and the Wang Wang cards. 
She and several other girls have been commissioned  by us to write modern Chinese stories for bi-lingual books with illustrations ...in this way they can earn their own money and help others at the same time.
                                               I am so  looking forward to seeing their work!

 Some of the girls already have their new glasses, thanks to generous donations from sponsors
                                           Here's to Love,  Friendship, Hope for the Future!
 Thanks to the generosity, love and support of sponsors around the world,
 these girls lives have been transformed...
and they will go on to transform the lives of many more.............

A Message to the girls from their Friends and Sponsors.....as they lit their Lanterns

We know that life can be very hard for you sometimes, 
but there is always a way to make things better. 
You have strong spirits, 
and we have a strong God who can help you!
When you set off the Sky Lanterns, 
think of your strong spirits rising above all the difficulties, giving you HOPE for the future.


Happy Children's Day to ALL children, 
but especially to those who struggle everywhere.........
...and to those who help to make a difference!
