    One of our ministries right now is hosting an English corner. What does that mean? On Sunday afternoons, for two hours, we provide an opportunity for locals to come practice their English in a casual environment. When we first started last year we would average around 3 students. We are now up to averaging 15! Most of the people who come are high schoolers with a few middle school kids, a handful of college students and a few adults. It’s a great opportunity not only for us to get to help these kids with their English but it also gives us an opportunity to get them to start thinking about deeper questions.

    Every month we have an activity for them. This past month we took them to a local Western style restaurant. We bought some pizzas and nachos for them to eat (some who had never had it before) and then we talked about some of the etiquette of eating “Western style”.

    Here’s a photo of the group!

    We’ve even had a few students asking more questions about why we’re here in China which gives us a chance to share about that aspect of our lives. Some of those same kids have been asking really deep questions like “what’s the meaning of life?” “is there more to life?” etc.

    It really has been one of the huge highlights for me. My weekends are busy with going to the orphanage and hosting English corner but I love it.
