Update #2 from China

A Photo July 31st 2008 No comments yet  

Our team in China is doing well. I received this update from them via email.

The week has flown by!!! We can hardly believe the last day of camp is already upon us. All team members are healthy and happy (just very tired). We haven’t had to eat any insects yet. 🙂 The food has actually been quite good. We have our longest day ahead of us. To give you a brief overview of what our day looks like: We meet about 7am for devotionals and announcements for the day. We then load the buses and head to Kuanjie Church. We prepare until 9am when the opening ceremonies where we sing songs, both fun and praise. We break up into team groups after that for two separate sessions, which occur before lunch. After lunch we have the third session. The three rotations they attend are English class, crafts and character, and game time. We incorporate scripture in each session as we teach them the basics of the English language. We spend about an hour in the afternoon preparing the students to do different performances for tomorrow night in front of their parents. After this time, we have closing ceremonies where we sing many more songs, and then allow students to come recite the verse they learned. It is an awesome time. The students are so excited to be able to speak and practice their English. More importantly, the verses have sparked many questions about God which we have been able to answer. How wonderful!!!

Tomorrow is the last day of camp and the longest. We will be at the church from about 8:30 am until the evening performance is over. We have had spiritual challenges every day. Some days more than others. Please pray that God will give all a good nights rest and give us strength and energy to finish the race strong. Pray that God would truly show His strength through our weakness. Thank you so much for your continued prayers!
