For English class this week, we taught them about cooking and camping.
When we shared a spiritual thought, I lit a $1000 NTD bill on fire to demonstrate a principle about the Holy Ghost…I’ve found out that English class students are actually interested in the spiritual shares if I make it super exciting. I think it actually worked well since there were a couple people who actively came up to us after class and wanted to talk more about church and us missionaries!
In addition, we took a BBQ and put it in the parking lot at the church and then proceeded to make hot dogs and roast marshmallows! Taiwanese people are so amazed at being able to roast marshmallows~~
On Saturday, we had a board game activity! We brought lots of board games to the chapel and invited people to come and play. We also made Winter Melon Tea (Winter Melon Tea is very popular in Taiwan – In China, it is believed to help you deal with high temperatures. It’s also known as “slim tea”, due to it’s natural diuretic effects.) and some other people brought pizza and soda. Everyone who came had fun (well, at least that was the hope!).
That same day, we also had one of the members in the area teach us Chinese during our language study time. She just took a class on how to teach foreigners Chinese, so we figured it would be a great opportunity for us to learn Chinese, and her to practice teaching foreigners! It went super well and we had fun! #winning
Henry took and sent some of the pictures this week – thanks! Today we’re going hiking somewhere pretty far away…but it’s going to be like 38 degrees Celsius, so that’s not very fun. I’m prepared to melt…
