Island ECC Team from Hong Kong, May 2015May 19, 2015
This trip marked the fourth time that the Island ECC team from Hong Kong came to Vietnam to work at the Thai Giang Pho middle school. The team could not hide their joy and excitement as they came back to what they call their second home. After a 3 hour flight from Hong Kong and an 8 hour overnight train ride to Lao Cai, the 20 member team prepared for a full day of work and fun.
The students were excited to welcome their brothers, hugging them like a long a long awaited reunion. The team, students, and teachers quickly started to work. They laughed and worked in the hot sun but their heart for each other was even warmer than the sun.
Working time !!!
During the trip, the ECC team helped Thai Giang Pho Middle School build a playground to help students have more physical training activities and increase their physical fitness. The students were so excited that they helped the team finish so they could enjoy playing with the items.
How fun !!!
In addition to the playground equipment, the team held several activities so they could spend time with the students. They played sack jump races, blindfolded each other while feeding one another, played with the water ball, and more! They had so much fun and it was very difficult for the team to say goodbye when the time came. So instead of saying, “goodbye” they said, “SEE YOU AGAIN!”.
GVI awaits the Island ECC team’s next visit to see their friends at Thai Giang Pho Middle School, because their loving and servant hearts will lead them back to their second home one day again soon!
