"Lessons on Love"

Love is a beautiful thing ,and God give everyone a desire for love. However, the world use all kinds of methods to make people forget love or make people live in counterfeit love, but those desire for true love can’t never be satisfied. I learn a lesson today that love is put down what you have completely and give others only what God has given you. We love because He first love us. So I think the motivation we love others is because that we know God love thems too. Not the motivation from myself or want to get something return. As for the marriage, is the analogy for Jesus’ love for church. I think it’s a important thing to keep our mind clean until we get married; so we can understand the love of Jesus.

"My Favorite Holiday"

My favorite holiday in VOICE is Thanksgiving. Naomi told us the story about Thanksgiving. It is about some Pilgrims took the Mayflower from England to America in 1620. But they didn’t have enough food and many people were dead. Fortunately, Indians helped them. So the Pilgrims in ordered to thank Indians, that they celebrated “Thanksgiving” on the fourth Thursday of November. After the story , we ate turkey and lots of tasty food. And we shared something that we were thankful for. After all, the meaning of Thanksgiving is “to fill with thanks.” Isn’t it?

"My Team"

I love my team. We are team 4 and our leader is Celia. We have many happy time together. Every morning we study Bible together and share something we learned from it. And in the end of a day, we have team prayer. It’s my favorite time with my team. By the way, Alana, Becca, Faith, Ada, and Chen Mama are also in our team. Every night we have awesome sharing, about the days highlight, our family, everyone’s life story. . . etc. Besides, Chen Mama always bring something to eat to us. We just like a small family. Everyone is happy and enjoy the time we spend together. The place where we are always filled with happy voice. And through the sharing, we get closer to each other. It’s so happy and warm with my team – a small family. 🙂

"Who is God to Me"

To me, God is the most powerful one, He created the earth, air, sun, and us. There was a time I felt that the distance between God and me was so far, He is that huge and I am that tiny, although I knew He will listen my prayer but I was not depend on Him very much, I just did things on my own. In recent months, there were a lot of troubles happened to me and I could not fix them by myself. That was a hard time to me, but God He was so mercy that He did not leave me alone. He make me realize I must rely on Him and He will help me, give me strength to go. I really want to have a good relationship with Him, that is the way to be a better Christian and experience He is real.

"The Inheritance"

This years musical, “The Inheritance” as performed by the VOICE & TESOL 2010 Students/Staff. The story was based off Luke 15, and the Prodigal Son. With many lines to memorize (in English of course!), songs to learn, and props to make – it was no easy feat to pull a musical together in just two weeks. However, each one gave outstanding effort, and the musical was a smashing success!
