Girl's Day Out

Today was a little different from the other days. For one thing, we did split wisdom search, which meant the guys got to sleep in and the girls got to do wisdom search in pajamas. I don’t really know what went on in the guys wisdom search, but the girls’ was special. We had a time of just sharing what was on our minds and on our hearts. I learned how easy it is to live three weeks or longer with a person and yet still not know the difficult things on their hearts. So we all got time to talk and “unburden” it was a unifying experience for us as we shared with, listened to, consoled and prayed for one another. Afterwards the staff girls gave us flowers to signify the passage in Matthew 6:28 "Consider the Lilly of the field how they grow; they toil not neither do they spin." We are reminded that God cares for and clothes the flower and how He will care even more for us and our issues and problems.

After wisdom search, we girls went out to have our hair washed and styled. It was definitely an interesting experience having our hair washed for us, but it was also fun and relaxing. For the Taiwanese people it was an interesting experience too as many of them had never dealt with so many foreigners before. Also I don't think they were prepared for Jeanie's bright red, thick curly hair. They all wanted pictures and had no idea how to style it. Us girls found it pretty comical.

After the outing we all got together for training and then prep work for our evening ministry. I got to help prepare the “mud melon” for the CI story. I guess I didn’t do a very good job of it, because when the story teller went to slice the melon through with a sword, it bounced off the melon and poor Tim had to saw at the melon unil it finally opened spilling it’s muddy yuckiness. So yeah, off the record if anyone else ever prepares a mud melon, try to use a fresher melon and actually pack the dirt in. ;-)
