Holy schmokes! Check out what God's doing in East Asia:

Make sure you read the article, too.

Oh, and a brief update: I sent out my first round of support letters this week... I'm praying like crazy for God to bring in what is needed for me to do his work, and checking the mailbox obsessively.

I also found out that my residency application isn't due until August. For those of you who don't know, I'm establishing residency in Iowa so that I won't be financially beaten to death by the ridiculous out-of-state tuition rate. This takes a minimum of 12 months, during which I must live and work in Iowa, be financially independent, take no more than six credit hours at a time, jump through this hoop, hop on one foot, etc... Overall, it's a fairly nasty process. For the sake of strengthening my residency application, I'm not supposed to spend more than 2 weeks out of the state... but what about the country...? I'm not sure of the effect this trip will have on my residency status. Right now, the plan is to make some anonymous calls about hypothetical situations, and see what happens. Even if it means doing the 12 months over again, God has shown me that in the scope of eternity, it's not a big deal. At all. So whether I get to keep my residency or start from scratch, East Asia, here I come!

Oh! Credit goes to the indubitably fantastic Andrew Meredith for sending me the China article :)
