Here's Heather!

Hey All!

I am so thankful to be here today.

Thank you Dalayna for having me.

I love the title of Dalayna's blog, Pointing Up.

Don't you?

Because that's what we should always be doing.

Pointing to Jesus.

Pointing to the cross.

To His love and His grace.

I'm Heather and I blog over at
The Mosby's in China
I don't know why but almost every single day when we get home from work I say, 
"Hey gurl, Heeeey!" to Chara, our dog. She get's so excited every time I say it. 

This is my better half, best friend and amazing husband, Zachary. 
We were super excited to get Hunger Games in a care package my mom and grandma sent!
Can you see the Christmas tree in the background?! So excited! We just put it up last weekend! 

We're The Mosby's. Nice to meet you!! 
"Wait, where do you live?!" you might ask.
We live in the beautiful Chinese coastal city of Qingdao. We live right on the water, which is amazing, with mountains in our back yard. People say Qingdao is a gem in China. It's clean and modern and has a great, relaxed environment. We can ferry it across the yellow sea to Japan or Korea, catch an hour flight to Beijing, or a 13 hour flight to LA. And our apartment is only 10, 637 miles from my hometown, Austin, Texas. :) Stop by anytime. ;P

So, what are you doing in China??!
(The next logical question.)

And the surface answer to that is that we are teaching in China.

But the deeper answer to that, is that we are here because God called us here.

And every day here we are seeking to figure out what it means, what it sounds like and what it looks like, to point to Him in a culture and among a people, who have never heard of Him.

A few things we've learned along the way:

Despite the "dryness" of the land, 
The harvest is rich and plentiful. 

Sometimes we find it easier to "point up" here than we did at home.
There's something about leaving the comforts of home, even if the new place your in is now your home, that draws you closer to God. 

Communication, food, paying bills, the faces around you,
everything, everything changes. 
But He is constant.

People are hungry for hope, a purpose and unconditional love.

It's acceptable to hawk a loogie anywhere and  have your children, 
of all ages, pee on the sidewalk, ask people how much you make a month, and cut in line. 
No big deal. :)

Have you ever lived or been overseas? 
What are some of the things you learned?

Hope you guys have a lovely first week of December! Eek! Christmas is so close!! 
We would love to have you stop by & follow our lives in China! 

So glad to have Heather on the blog today! 
Do stop by and check her out, drop her a line, and even follow her if you would like. As you can already tell, this is a women of compassion, courage, and has a heart for God and his people.
