We've had an opportunity to help out an English center! We have only been one time so far, but are hoping to get to go several more times. All of the students were so friendly and eager to get to know us. I learned two not so deep things from this experience:
- If they ask you if you like to sing and you say yes, then they are going to ask you to sing karaoke, and
- If you honestly answer the "do you have boyfriend" question, then people will offer their brother who "loves tall girls" to you. A boy might also dedicate a song to you and proceed to sing "She Will be Loved" by Maroon 5. There is truly never a dull moment here!
Also, last week, we hung out at our friend's coffee shop even more than usual because it was extra hot outside and we did not have plans with any friends. We usually go during a slow time for business which has provided us with a chance to become friends with the workers. We have gotten to share several stories with them as well!
Please think about these coffee shop friends... that they will begin to ask more questions.
As always, thank you so much for your thoughts for us and the people we are working with. Dad is so good and so worth it!
