Quick Nanjing Trip

So this was our second time going to Nanjing for church. We are having a lot of fun getting to know the members in the Nanjing Branch. Last Sunday we did the trip in one day and it was a blast! We left our school around 6:30 AM and took a bus to the train station. Our train left at 8:00 and got into Nanjing at 9:20. From there we took the Subway a few stops over to the Gulou station. Then we walked to the Hotel where the Branch meets. After church we went to a yummy noodle place for lunch with Brad and Ben. After that we went and had bubble tea (not really tea). It was so good!!! We love Bubble Tea so now in Changzhou we get bubble tea whenever we can, we love it. So in the evening we met up with some other friends from the branch and we made our way over to Purple Mountain. It is a big mountain that you can walk up and lookout over the whole city of Nanjing. It was so good to hangout with a fun group of young adults. I just kept thinking how crazy it was that we were in China all together, but just hangin out like we would in the US. I am grateful for the opportunity we have to go to church every once in a while out here in China. It is extremely hard to go even a few weeks without being able to partake of the sacrament and go to church meetings. I am so much more grateful for church now. What a blessing it is!!
