A Special Request for The Study

It has been about 4 months since I started studying with my Bible students in China.  They are doing wonderful, but I have to tell you something.  SYPE and other VOIP are discouraged in China and the government regulates the internet trying to prevent using these programs by cutting bandwidth when it is recognized.  Apparently this became stronger this last year.   So having the study can be quite challenging at times.  Sometimes we have to reconnect half a dozen times to get through our chapter - but they are all so eager that it makes all the effort worth it.  And often how it works is that when I say my prayer before it starts I ask for enough internet power just to make it through the study.  And I was thinking tonight how funny it must sound, because usually just before the study starts to wynd down, in the last paragraph, the internet starts to crackle on the China side. Everyone knows that this means any second it is going to cut out, so we all start talking really fast all at once to get final answers and comments in.  Hopefully years from now we can all laugh about these memories together. :-)

Love to all,
d  :-)
