Chapin reactions to black jelly beans
A tutorial made for La Sierra University. This video shares how some folks have to wash in the mission field. “Lost in the Zoo” by GDEB.
Seven months have gone by; less than eleven weeks before I say my good byes. Sounds like a ways away, but time goes by fast.
Not much has happened since my last post but praise God all is well. The school just finished their first term and my kids still like English. I consider that’s definitely a good sign. It never ceases to amuse me when one of the kids comes up to me and asks, “We are having English today, right?” or, “Can we go first?” As agreed, they were rewarded this week with a little ice cream for working hard throughout the bimester.
I feel blessed with my classes. I feel it’s made my time worth while. Considering I could be elsewhere right now, I want each moment to count. I don’t expect the kids to remember much of what we go over in class - especially when I’m gone - but I do wish for them to remember our time as something they looked forward to.
A smashing opportunity happened for me earlier this month. An organization that works with the project and school next door had some folks offer their dental services here and to some of the nearby villages. I was fortunate to tag along as the translating assistant. Wow! What a job. Pulling teeth was crazy. But I really enjoyed gaining some insight on medical work in the mission field; it’s something I would do again. I can say one week proved enough.
It’s funny how close you can get to someone despite not knowing them very well.
