We have made the move to beautiful and modern Beijing and are excited about our opportunity

We have completed our move to Beijing and begin work with the Beijing church of Christ (www.beijingchurchofchrist.com) in one of the most modern cities (16-17 million people) in this very large country. We will begin making arrangements to studying Mandarin in one of the universities close to our apartment and engaging daily with the locals in hopes of discussing “Good News” that changes a person’s life!

We took a school van with our 10 pieces of luggage to Wuhan (4 hours away from Jingzhou) and flew from Wuhan to Beijing (two hour flight), where we were met at the airport and safely delivered to a Super 8 hotel for three days while we wanted for our two-bedroom apartment, our new home for the coming years. It is colder here, but no worse than upper-Ohio, so we know we can handle what is ahead. There is indoor heating everywhere, since we are north of China’s Yellow River. (I am sure I have never been more pleased to be living in the north). 🙂

There are some amazing Family here…we met many of them during the summer when we attended an Intermission of encouragement and enlightenment (see slideshow). I am looking forward to getting with Andrew Hill and updating my electronic services for the best possible use here. Sign up and follow this new adventure…and thanks for your prayerful support.

We know some who have supported us in the past will not be able to do that again, due to stateside economic issues, so we’ll need to make up the difference. We have faith and know that God has placed us here for a good cause, and He will supply our needs. Our China expenses will again be covered by our work here, but we have obligations in America that need to be covered (life insurance, storage of our household items, Harding school loans, etc.)

Contact me at ged880@yahoo.com to get information on money contributions. Make checks out to ‘China’ and send to West Broward church of Christ, 12550 West Broward Blvd., Plantation, Fla. 33325. Those attending or visiting can write a check and place it in the contribution plate, and Jay and Gary will see that it is handled properly.

We were blessed to spend 20 months (four semesters) teaching Oral English in Jingzhou, Hubei. If you are interested, you can see the many reports at www.tjsman.wordpress.com. You can also follow Eric and Wendy’s news at http://pritchport.blogspot.com/.
