Mongolia Summer Camp 2010
Somehow through various channels, the sum that we prayed for just came in and all was sufficient for the camp...I had just the perfect team for this camp. Lots of team dynamics and just the right people with the right skills for the various tasks needed at camp...The day trip to Terelj unintendedly became our reccee trip for the camp as the campsite turned out to be just in the national park and hence we could arrange for the hike and horse-riding session for the kids...When we still could not find translators just 3 days to our camp, our tour guide whom we met at our day trip in mongolia before the camp agreed to work as our camp translator and we found out that our guesthouse owner is an english teacher and she helped us to get her student to be our camp translator as well. All in a few hours, we found 2 good translators who played vital role in our camp...Despite some communication issues and inefficiency, all the arrangement for transport, food and logistics still materialized, and all was transported to and fro campsite with the limited vehicles...I could share about God and encouraged the kids in His ways and edify them in their walk as all the kids at camp happened to be christians as well. Thank you for the initiative that they took in asking us about our religion, which allowed us to find out that we share the same faith. And how I miss ending each day of the camp with praise, worship and prayer time...All children, volunteers and mongolian camp staff all had a great time at camp and greater understanding of each other was established, inspiring the mongolian staff to do their part and help these kids as well...We met a boss of a korean restaurant whom have been helping out street children and the poor living in the landfill for the past 5 years. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity that she gave us to visit her children shelter and to follow her to the landfill to feed the poor.Thank God for equipping me all these time for this trip and giving me the right people to assist me. Thank God that I picked up korean which turned out to be so much more useful than english in mongolia.
