Reaching Our Goals

- Tracey and one of the girls from her CI team! -

Today was such an incredible day for me! It's not what the team did that made it so incredible, but it's what God did!

At first I thought there would only be around 10 young people attending the Youth to Youth because we did not see very many youth attending the basic seminar. But to our surprise, there were around 30 youth that came!

Not just that, most of the youth were very responsive. They were able to share and open up with each other during the discussion time in their small groups. Another thing that really surprised me were the questions that they asked for the question and answer time! I was helping Jolynn to translate some of the questions from Bahasa to English, and we really had a hard time sorting out the good ones because almost all of them were very good questions! From those questions, we knew that God is really are working in their hearts and they are thinking about it very seriously. It was truly amazing to see God's work in their hearts!

As for CI, it was equally great! A lot of the teachers said it was one of the best days of the whole trip, and the large groups were also very good! The children's responses to the stories were quite unexpected (in a good way), and we could tell from their responses that they really got the point of each story.

- "Paulus" and the people he preached to - 

That was the awesome part--the goal was reached! Everyone was exhausted physically at the end of the day, but very excited about the great things that God is doing in these children's lives. We all knew that even though we were tired, but all of the things that we have done is truly worth it because we are doing it for Christ. It is such a great privilege and honor to be able to be here and witness the incredible things that God is doing, both in the participants' hearts and also the teachers' hearts!
