Looking forward to all there is to learn from our ITU: CHOICES

Reflections:
I learned many things about Asia that I never knew. Some
examples, is how there is flooding and how diseases are actually in
the water. It’s sad how people are getting sick from the floods. I
think God is also going many miracles in Asia, by having
missionaries bring clean water, food, and medicine to the people.

The countries of Asia are similar to Africa, because they are both
going through poverty and sickness. They also both have
missionaries out there trying to help them. They also have the same
theme, HOPE!
