Throughout the day I kept running to the bathroom and running to get water cause my throat just wasn’t giving me a break. I really hate this part of being sick. VBC meeting took a lot longer than I anticipated, and since I left right after I came home, I am now stuck here doing prep for tomorrow instead of sleeping in my bed like a sick person should be doing. Choreographing stuff for kids is a lot harder than I thought. They all told me in the beginning that they wanted to actually dance, and to be honest, I’m not much of a dancer. So I just looked up hand motions from sign languages and tweaked it a bit here and there. However, they told me it was kind of boring, so for a while now I’ve been trying to incorporate more of actual ‘dance moves’. I keep telling them to demonstrate for me so I can get an idea of what they like, but so far no one has showed me anything worth figuring out.
The night is starting to drag on, and I still have yet to figure out what to teach the kids tomorrow. Their graduation ceremony is this Friday, so it doesn’t exactly leave me a lot of time left. It’s pretty crazy to think about the end of summer, when I look back and realize all I did was work and spend time with Seekers people. In all honesty, I would do it all over again just to be in that moment with these people (minus the long work hours). Right now I am reminded again of how much I miss Tina Koo. I hope she’s doing well in New Zealand. I know God’s doing amazing things out there, I have no doubt about that. I have this list of names I wrote down of friends who went on mission trips this year. I can’t say that I was able to provide them with 100% prayer support, and that’s something I wish I could’ve changed. I’m just glad that God was able to use every single one of my friends this summer and hopefully, their presence was able to make deep enough of an impact.
But I know that even though most of us are back here in the city, God is still changing the life of those they touched.
