Small World, Big God

After joining the world of Facebook, my husband reconnected with an old friend from high school who is now a pastor. Of all places, he has taken regular trips to Guangxi (specifically, Beiliu where Lia is)! So we have some great pictures of the area that she's from and from the capital city of Nanning (where I assume we'll be staying while we are there).

It's amazing how half way across the world can hold some pretty amazing similarities to home.

For instance:

He describes these mountains outside of Beiliu as being very similar to the ones in southwest Virginia where Scott is from.

And they have their own Volunteer Fire Department, too! I wonder how their Thursday night bingo turnout is Grandma and Pop Paw?

And look Grandaddy Bobby! A golf course! What says "home" more than 18 holes no matter where you are in the world, right?

But the one picture that I saw which convinced me we might be able to survive the wild, open frontier of Guangxi was this one:

That is if they're open 24 hours.

Happy Chinese New Year!
