Yesterday proved to be an incredible ending to an incredible conference.
The participants seemed to have a great time and the evaluations of the conference seemed extremely positive. YAY!
After the closing ceremony and a quick dinner, half of us drove to the train station in the POURING rain. This picture is the best I got and it doesn’t even come close to showing how heavy the rain was. My luggage was soaked and all my clothes are currently laid out all over the room trying to dry. Luckily I have an awesome roommate that doesn’t mind the mess =)
Once we got all cuddled up in the train, we attempted to sleep. Here four of us are in our close quarters for the evening. We had a good time, and I think we all slept a little bit. I’ll be honest, I’m thankful I took some Tylenol PM or else that water dripping all over my bed probably would have kept me up more =)
Do you think we have enough luggage?!
I woke up this morning and looked out the window on the train and just took a deep breath of relief. Its hard to explain how beautiful this place is. Its like the stress just melts away the minute I see the mountains of Bac Ha.
We spent this morning going over our curriculum for the conference and then after lunch we attempted to go to the school to set up our rooms for tomorrow. Did I mention its still raining?! And the van got stuck….
So we just walked. And now my room is all set up and my translator and I are all ready to start teaching tomorrow!
The conference will begin at 8am our time, 8pm your time. Please think of us and lift us up tonight before you go to sleep. We need the rain to stop so the teachers will be able to drive their scooters to the conference and for energy and health as we engage, teach, and love on these teachers! Thanks =)
