Mision little diaries IV

7a21ff59a6 5 April 2017. From Biancun, I went to Beijing by bus; Benedict went with me. I would have wanted to take the high speed train from Shijiazhuang to be in Beijing within 90 minutes. But Victor suggested that we take the 5-hour bus ride to Beijing. I had been wondering how Benedict and I would communicate with each other. He had studied English in college, but had not had any chance to use English as a language. As it turned out, that 5-hour trip became five hours of English lesson on the bus: he learned and memorized the Our Father in English. If only the other passengers knew that we were actually praying throughout that trip!

I planned to meet the other candidate, Matthew, in Beijing, but he was traveling somewhere in China, so I was with Benedict for two days. And on our second day, after the Our Father, he learned the Hail Mary as we prayed the rosary in English before bed. Until now, we pray together in English every night in WeChat. Maybe some weeks before our English Camp in Changzhi in July, our candidates and I can have our night prayer and sharing every evening in a WeChat group to prepare for the camp. 5 April 2017.
