Today we went into two Thai schools and taught English to children of various ages.
The first school had children in the classroom from ages 6-14. We sang a few songs, preached the Gospel, performed a skit about the prodigal son, and taught a few basic English phrases.
The second school we went to had us teach 13 and 14 year olds. We broke up into small groups and practiced conversational English.
After practicing English, we taught “Lord I Lift Your Name on High” with hand motions and sang it with the kids.
Today’s Chapel service was about how God is provider. We did a skit based on the feeding of the five thousand, sang songs, and did crafts/Bible study just like the night before.
For me, today was the most rewarding day because we got to spend more time talking to the children about Jesus. It was great interacting with them and learning more about them.
I spent a good deal of time talking to a woman named Gai at the second school. She said she believed in Jesus but was also Buddhist. I talked to her about how important faith is and how Jesus is the only God and how we can never do enough good works to reach him. I don’t know how much she believed, but I pray that I planted seeds today that God will grow in her heart. – MD
Tomorrow we get to have a day of rest and recreation with Ron and Belle, our two missionary friends from Fort Worth. We’re looking forward to a time of good fellowship.
