This week we spent a lot of time playing, laughing and getting to know each other. This included a trip to Tae Lao Lao’s house (Great Grandma) and a meal out with her. Pow Pow and Gong Gong (Grandpa and Grandma) even went with us to Edwards Apple Orchard where we encountered apple donuts! There were several other firsts this week, which included Swedish Pancakes, new friends and a Chiropractor visit. As we were driving by I was nudged by the Holy Spirit to notice a fish symbol on top of a Chiropractor sign. As we turned around we decided to go in as Becke’s back was suffering. No sooner than I entered the receptionist said: ‘Dan Haas, is that you?’. The receptionist then said: ‘no missionary or pastor pays money to come here’! As I looked up I noticed Brenda speaking, a lady from Creekwood Church! With an appointment made for Becke I came out to the car and told Becke. We then had a mini praise service, thanking God for the divine appointment. Part of how we praised was using a Mandarin kids praise CD. When we have the CD on we can hear a little voice singing along in the back seat! Another way we try and bring Mandarin into our world is through YouTube videos showing kids singing Praise Music. A favorite song of all of ours is: Jesus Loves You.
All in all this week can be summed up with new foods, God moments and fun bonding moments.
