First, I want to show my appreciation to everyone who pray for me for this trip. I will be leaving this afternoon to LAX. As many people know, there was a tragedy happened in LAX last week. Please pray for the people who witnessed and involved in this event. From LAX, our flight will take us to Miami first, and then Haiti. This will be my first time flying all the way to East Coast. I am excited to take the same flight with my friends to the place I never visited before. With this very special experience, I will definitely update pictures and videos when I come back.
Please do not stop praying for the whole team. For my personal prayer request, please pray for my physical and spiritual health. I am still coughing, but I feel all right. So far, I am not sure what to expect when I go there, but I pray for a sensitive heart to know what people need.
Last Saturday, I was very sick. I rarely get sick since I exercise regularly, but for some reason, I was sick. After 10-11 hours of sleep and everyone’s prayer, I was recovered the next day. Praise the Lord for this very speedy recover.
Why mission? I don’t think there is any right answer for this question! I just know that I don’t want my passion to be gone and do nothing in my early 20.
Story begins here. One day, I notice I care money more than everything. I accidentally lost $6, and that upset me almost the whole week. $6 to many people might not a big number, but to me, a penny means something to me. I personally believe that little by little, I can save a lot and make my dream comes true. However, by noticing that money is my big weakness, I decided to do something more than $6 can do. Visit homeless shelter, buy food for fellowship, making some donations, etc, are on the list, but that still didn’t solve my problem–$6 of upset.
The following days, when I was doing devotion, God somehow gave me the idea of MISSION! I wasn’t sure that mission was what God wanted me to do, but I started asking some people who are familiar with church mission teams. Haiti Endowment Fund (HEF) was one of the mission teams that I got introduced. I looked into their trip package, and decided to apply. From that $6 story to submit application, it was less than a month. I didn’t want my passion to go away. Forgot to mention, I talked to my mom before I apply for this mission trip.
This is the end of story why I decided to go on mission this year. Stay tune! I will talk more about #HAITI.
I am weak when I get hurt.
I am weak when I judge her.
I am weak when I knew about her past.
I am weak when she pretends nothing happen.
I am weak when I think I am better than her.
I am weak when I see the person who hurts me.
I am weak when she doesn’t know she hurts me.
I am weak when I can’t overcome with my weakness.
I am weak when she left me with the scars and tears.
I am weak when I have sinful thought about the person.
I am weak when I focus on worldly value more than God.
I am weak when I don’t want to go to church because of her.
I am weak when I should love the person because God loves me first.
I am weak when I can’t forgive the person when God already forgives me.
I am just so weak! Sometimes I got trip over, and I couldn’t stand up and stand strong for God and myself. I will pray over and over. Surely, this is a good lesson.
