From Seoul to Singapore

On Friday, March 21st we started our Spring Break by taking 47 middle schoolers to Singapore. (Well, us and 8 other teachers...)

We were headed on our yearly Immersion trip, an opportunity for middle schoolers to serve in Indonesia!  I had been once before, in 2010, but this time was much more special, seeing as my man planned the whole thing!

He did a wonderful job and everything went so well. I was so proud of him and so thankful to be on his mission trip.  (Our school runs about ten each year). I've been on four total and this one was my favorite!

The trip acts not only as a service trip, but an opportunity for us to get to know our students better and teach them more about God and his love for them.  Each night we had a large group devotion and then a small group discussion time which is always a sweet time to get to talk to Girls and share about the Lord with them.

The first picture below is of me and my 8th grade small group in Incheon airport, ready for our big adventure!

I was definitely apprehensive about the flight, but all went smoothly and before we knew it we were in Singapore, the most religiously diverse country in the world.  It was also extremely hot.

On Saturday during the day, I had the privilege of taking seven seventh grade girls around the big city/country.

We traveled to Sentosa Island and did some high ropes courses, as well as a zip line on an island.  At night we played a "Breakout" Game.  A company provides this activity, and I think it would be a ton of fun with a group of adults.  Basically they lock you in a small room, and you must piece the clues together to get out.  The puzzles were a bit hard for my girls, but the creators were extra kind and gave them help.  I would highly recommend it!  Click here for more information.

That night we slept soundly in anticipation for our big trip to Indonesia!
