We are on our way back to the States.
Last week was an amazing week to serve in Proem kids camp. The first day, Kyle found out there is a Chinese couple in the camp and he introduced them to me. I was surprised that God brings Isabella and Kevin from the northeast of China (my hometown) to Poland , and I got a chance to meet and serve with them for the whole week. During the week, Kyle and I helped Kevin and Isabella in the morning with their Chinese language and Chinese Kung-fu workshop. I enjoyed helping to kids to speak Chinese. Every afternoon, Kyle and I had crafts club with the kids. We started with 18 students, and every day we got more and more students came to our class. These kids are so talented and creative. By the end of the week we had over 45 students in the crafts club.
I love serving and spending time with the kids in the camp. We might not understand by language, but they know I love being with them. Being with them and creating crafts is my way of telling them how much I love them, because Jesus is love. Meeting Isabella and Kevin helped me to learn more about the needs of Missions in China. I know Jesus wants to me to go back China one day to serve Him. The conversations with Kevin and Isabella helped me to get a clear direction.
The person that inspired me the most on this trip was my teammate Merline. Merline and I shared the same room in this trip. She is an amazing sister in Christ who loves Jesus with all her heart. Every night before to bed, Merline and I talked. We talked about work, friends and families, our past, our weakness, our passions, love, and Jesus.
