MISSION CAPSULES: The Amity Summer English Program invites volunteers from around the world to provide English training and demonstrate teaching methodology to Chinese English teachers. Volunteers provide a three-week English training course to teachers from primary and middle schools in rural and remote areas. Past participant Anne Saunders shares, “The program is about people coming together for conversations. The experiences of relationship-building and intercultural exchange provide opportunities for “love made manifest” and glimpses of God in our midst today.” This year, Presbyterians Sharing … will support a team of four from Knox church in Waterloo as they share their gifts and strengthen the PCC’s partnership with the Amity Foundation.

MORE FROM THE CHILDREN ON LOVE

Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day - Mary Ann – age 4

I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones - Lauren – age 4

When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you! Karen – age 7 (perhaps Disney?)

Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross - Mark – age 6

The winner was a four year old boy whose next door neighbour was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there. When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbour, the little boy said, “Nothing, I jut helped him cry”
