Gladys and the Mandarin

Gladys Aylward and the Mandarin have many differences. They both are kind, but they do have differences. They both have a lot of similarities.

There are many things that are that are the same. They both loved China. They tried to defend China. They both accepted Christ. They helped feed 100 children. They both were buried in China.

There are many differences also. The Mandarin was a ruler and Gladys was not. Gladys was a missionary and helped 100 children across the mountian to Sian. She was a "Storyteller"and the Mandarin was not. Gladys stopped a riot in the prison and later became a grandmother.

I think they both helped in God's plan. The Mandarin gave the children food for their journey. Gladys helped the children get across the rocky and rough mountains. This story was from These Are My People. And I think that you can help China, too, with God's help.

The Deal I Made

I made deal with my Mom on March 22,2010. I made a deal that my Mom can kiss me whenever she wants for $4.51. And I'm glad for it. That means my mom can give me Elf ear kisses for the rest of my life.

Argentina is a good place to visit because you can see many interesting things there.

Magellanic penguins live on the Valdes Peninsula of Argentina. There are more cattle than people in Argentina (there are 38,000,000 people in Argentina, and 54,000,000 cattle).

An everyday drink is yerba mate. The tango is a very famous dance. In 1403, Thomas Bravlio Platero became the first public clerk of Buenos Aires. Gypsy women live in Argentina. You can tell who's a Gypsy and who's not by the dress.

Argentines love meat including beef. They like rodeos. Argentina is a nice place to visit.
