Well...our Miracle-working, Mountain-moving, Awe-inspiring, Gasp-giving God (love this, Linny!!!) had provided! Shao's godmother is going to pay most of the balance of Shao's tuition fees for the summer Ballet Intensive course. There is a remaining balance of $950. Go, God!
I am excited to see how He will meet this need. There is a part of me that says this is a lot of money, and just think of how many orphans this could help, etc. And then God fills me with His peace, and I KNOW that this is the right thing to do. This is NOT just something ShaoXi thinks would be fun. This is her LIFE. She is a ballerina. That is her goal. God Himself gave her this extraordinary gift and she truly wants to share it with the world. She is longing to go back to China and teach little orphans to dance! How cool is THAT?!?!? We are hoping to go back in 2 or 3 years. We are going to begin to collect hand-me-down dance wear, so that we can give it to the little girls in China, and then teach them to dance! And I have committed myself to helping this child reach her goals. I committed myself the day her aiyi placed her in my arms and she was no longer an orphan, but a very beloved child...of mine and of God. I believe with all my heart that this child must dance. I think she would rather dance than breathe.
SOOO...I am thankful, so very thankful for Gramma Donna & Grampa Ron for investing in this child's future. They are laying up treasures in Heaven, I do believe!
Where I Went!!
