After everyone had got up and eaten breakfast, we had group wisdom search, which started around 10:00am. During this wisdom search we read Isaiah 52, sang several songs, and split into small groups of 4-6. While in these small groups, we were to write, first in forty words or less, and then in twenty, the Good News that we are commanded to spread.

Following this, we split into our mini groups consisting of 6-8 people, and split up to go have lunch. We started lunch at about 11:30 and finished at about 12:00. Not being due at the church until later that night (about 6), we played a game we had been taught during wisdom search. The game was a Taiwanese scavenger hunt. We were to go around town and ask specific questions (in Chinese) for the purpose of finding the Chinese names for particular items. Some of the questions included something you would take home with you, or something you wouldn’t mind driving. So we would each pick a question or two and ask (in Chinese) how to say the name of the item in Chinese. We then returned to the hotel at approximately 3:00 and as a large group took turns talking about what we had found out and learned.

Presently, we were required to go change into dress clothes and meet in the lobby at 4:45-5:00, in order to get to the church on time. During this time, we loaded up the bus with all of our CI supplied, and headed to the church. We then proceeded to unload the bus, while doing this we got to meet some of our interpreters. Following this, we had a “classic box Chinese dinner” at which time we met the rest of our interpreters and got to know them a little better. Finishing dinner between 7:30 and 8:00 we started teacher training. We finished this and headed back to the hotel. Arriving at approx. 10:30, we all headed to bed looking forward to a good night’s sleep and a new and exciting day tomorrow.
