These past two days in East Asia have been filled with many new experiences and new friends! Yesterday, we met with a friend who wanted to give us a tour of her campus, since it was different than the one we were familiar with. There, we met with a friend of hers and were able to talk and get to know her as well. While the girls were doing that, the guys went to play basketball and made new friends also. Later on, we went to English corner– an event on the largest campus where people go to practice their English. It was a great way to make new friends and get to know more about the culture.
Today, we went to a famous tourist spot and invited some of the friends we made the previous night. We had a lot of good conversations. My favorite one was during lunch; two of my teammates and I were able to petition while another one of us shared the good news with one of our new friends! It was amazing to be a witness to that and to have the opportunity to join her in lifting her up as the Father was enabling her to boldly share. At night, one of our partners here was having a game night at their apartment, and we were able to go. We played games and talked for several hours and had a lot of fun!
I am looking forward to these next few days and meeting up with the new friends we’ve made, petitioning that we have the opportunity to share with them. This trip has already been a blessing and I am excited to see what more our father has in store for us these upcoming days!
