Agape Fish Fund Receives a $15,000 Grant from
We really thank God for His wonderful guidance in the midst of different kinds of hindrances and difficulties. We are thankful for all our prayer partners from inside and outside of the country. We love to express our special thanks to Agape Fish Fund, which is our main donor organization and has a real heart of love for the Myanmar orphans. We appreciate their heart for the kingdom of God. We also express our heartfelt gratitude to all the private donors and friends that help us in many ways so that ACR could continue providing food and transforming the beautiful lives of the disadvantaged vulnerable children.
We were going to visit Rui Rui in the countryside of Gansu. Rui Rui has congenital heart disease, but she is unable to receive surgery because of her pulmonary hypertension. So for the last two years, I have raised the money for her heart medicine by teaching a summer craft camp. I was so excited to finally meet her in person!
Rui Rui lived far away from the campsite, which is why we were up at 5 in the morning. A private car had been hired to take us first to Lanzhou, and then we would take the bullet train out to Dongwei. Before reaching the train station, we stopped for breakfast at a small beef noodle shop where we had fresh, hand-pulled noodles.

Our last day with the children was a half-day at the Natural History Museum in Lanzhou. The day before we had gone to visit a girl who Beth supported through her craft camps. The girl lived up in the rural areas of Gansu, far away from the camp, so we spent the entire day there and went back to the city after to find a place to sleep.
I was so excited to see the children again! I had missed them, even though only 24 hours had passed.
The children greeted us joyfully, many of them rushing to give us hugs. While waiting to enter the museum, they all began to play the hand game we taught them a few days ago. I was so glad to see them enjoying themselves and playing the game not only with us but the other counselors and with each other.
We explored the museum, looking at ancient pottery and tiny statues of Buddha. All too soon, it was time for us to say goodbye.
It was a flurry of hugs and tears and some people looked at us curiously as they passed by, but it didn’t matter. We took a group picture at the end.
