Today Nathan wrote an essay about his life in the village. This was one of the sentence he wrote: 我们平常散步的地方是高山野岭，在那里大自然是大家的厕所。I couldn’t stop laughing.
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others.
(An African proverb – heard it on Bethel Podcast titled “Mission of Family” Sep 18, 2016)
“Who’s your favorite kid, dad?” Olivia add
“Are to trying to kill me? ” Dad replied wisely.
“Answer wisely dad. One day you’re in, and the next day you’re out!” Joani added slyly.
(A scene at the Korean Center in Almaty, Kazakstan)
“The things we’ll do tomorrow are the things we would have done today if we had thought about them yesterday.” (unknown author)
“I feel bad for the living goddess. She stays there till puberty, and that is like the worst time to come out!” Joani commented feeling bad for the young goddess girl in Nepal, Kathmandu.
(Note: After the goddess is chosen at a young age, the girl is confined in the temple until she reaches puberty, at which point another girl is chosen.)
