EVENT DATE: May 13, 2012
As you may or may not already know, I am going to Hokkaido, Japan from May13, 2012 to August 6, 2012. This has been my dream for the past 4 years, and being accepted into this program was such a blessing. I spent a large portion of the past 6 months applying to as many Japan ministry programs as possible, until I finally heard back from OMF. I applied to their summer program and was accepted this past month. I will be doing my ministry with Conny Stoeckle of OMF Serve Asia in a small town called Nakasatsunai . I will be involved with Obihiro Glory Church in Nakasatsunai, Otofuke and Obihiro, and will gain firsthand experience in different kinds of outreach.
Some of my duties include, but are not limited to:
-Teaching English to Junior High students
-Spreading my testimony
-Giving a Powerpoint presentations on New York City life and Columbia University
-Cooking/Baking classes for young people/teens
-Teach games, crafts, and songs
-BE AN ABSOLUTE BLESSING!
If there is any way that you can help me I would appreciate it! Thank you for listening to my story and supporting this exciting opportunity!
