Last Day of SYME - Friend Day!

Today was the last day of my first term of SYME. For this term I mostly taught in the Conversation Class and the Acts Class, while also being involved in doing Chapel messages and other types of ministries. It has been a lot of fun getting to know the students and spending time with them on the weekends outside of school.

Its amazing to see what God is doing in the lives of the people of Taiwan. Many of the students this term have been impacted in a big way through the ministry of SYME. Many of them have family members who don't believe in Christ but worship their ancestors and idols.

The students here have a passion to share Christ and to grow.

The Saturday after the last day of classes we run an hour Bible Club for friends and family of the students or whoever else would like to come. The theme was burdens.

Clay and Deborah mc'd the meeting talking about burdens. (see pile of burdens in photo)
I worked with Josh for two weeks to help him prepare for his part in Bible Club, "prayer time". I coached him into writing the prayer, pronunciation and presentation.

Nikki shared her testimony about how she didn't know Jesus Christ before she came to SYME. God has used SYME to have a big impact on her life. She has become a great witness to her many family members who have never heard the name of Jesus.

Clay played the role of Jesus, healing many sick people, while taken on the burdens of our lives.

Dora played a game with the audience to help them memorize a Bible verse.

Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

Many people heard the gospel clearly shared by Stan while Betsy translated it into Chinese. Possibly it was the first time for them to hear the gospel or even the name of Jesus.
