I’m off to Shenzhen today – my last train journey. It will be just under four hours. Packed again. I was hoping my luggage would be lighter by now ready for the flights to Haikou and Beijing, because I’ve given away all but one of the presents I brought and the other things I was given for certain people… But I wasn’t expecting to receive so many gifts (some of which are quite heavy). I know for a fact that there are still some more things I need to collect from Beijing on my return there.
Chen and Qin took me to Xiamen North train station to see me off.
要知道耶和华是 神； 他创造了我们，我们是属他的； 我们是他的子民，也是他草场上的羊。
Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the Lord, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.
