A Cultural Exchange Trip of True Jesus Church College Students to Manila

A Cultural Exchange Trip of True Jesus Church College Students to Manila

After three pre-service training, the VMT5 members-a Cultural Exchange Group pay Manila a culture visit.

“Cultural Exchange Activities”
The first activity is the Adventure Education held at Philippine Institute of Quezon City. On the first day, Aug. 15 2008 we had a public performance of Hymnal presentation comprises of singing, dancing, drama, Taiwan culture introduction and Q and A session. Then a big group game was held at auditorium and ended with the seven jumps folk dancing.

Second day we started with singing and action. Then small groups adventure education were held at six classes. Most classes were held with very highly motivation. Through the activities the VMT members made good friends with the Filipino-Chinese Students. Since that experience we held four Cultural Exchange Feast consequently and there were about 15 students of PIQC joined us at True Jesus Church Manila 41 A. Bonifacio St. Brgy Kabayanan San Juan.

The final Cultural Exchange Feast was held on Aug. 24 2008 at TJC Manila, the rest of three cultural exchange activities were on Aug. 14, 15, 16. There were 24 new friends attended this special program. The small chapel of TJC Manila was full of joy and peace. Most friends were invited by Manila Church youths. The program initiated with the ice-breaking, hymnal singing and action in Mandarin. The conquering stations game (闖關遊戲) concluded the morning session. During the lunch Pr. Ted Huang gave his speech of Nothing is Impossible, He is Possible. After lunch there were hymnal singing, games, tea break prayer session and photo time

“Hymnal Presentation”
For this cultural exchange trip to Manila, we had four hymnal presentations. The first one was at Philippine Institute of Quezon City. Then three venues were the Halili Compound of Dns. Phoebi, Dominican College and China Town.

On Aug. 20 we had a very warm program with the Dominican College students during the Inter-Culture Program of Philippine, Taiwan. There were more than 60 students officers, teaching staffs and students of Tourism Department attended the program. We opened the program with opening prayers of two countries. Then the hymnal presentation follow with hymnal singing, drama of forgiveness, Taiwan culture introduction, violin playing hymnal singing and concluded with folk dancing from Dominican College students.

“Mandarin Courses”
Apart from the Tourism and the above two types of cultural activities, the VMT trip to Manila this season was especially back Glory to our beloved God for giving us the opportunity to teach Mandarin in the Dominican College. Professor Daniel Shiao was invited to teach the students from the departments of tourism and Hotel Restaurant Management (HRM). The Mandarin was one compulsory subject of the teaching curriculum of the department of Tourism. And amazingly there were 62 students chosed the Mandarin courses.

On the first day’s lesson, there were more than 15 VMT members visited the college and therefore the students had a lovely chance to practice their newly learning Mandarin with the VMT members, Taiwan College students. And it was indeed a totally new experience of the college students to know Taiwan official language in such wonderful opportunity. Since then some students keep coming to True Jesus Church at 41 Bonifacio Street either attending the Cultural Exchange Feast or free talking to the Taiwan college students.

During our Mandarin lesson the first day we initiated with a lovely Mandarin song singing. Then the practice of using the pronouns of I, you and he to complete a simple sentences such as Jesus loves me, you and him. Or I love you, him, her. Or do you like me, him, her? And then the learning of figures 1, 2, 3,4,5,6,7,8,9, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90. And we ended this day’s Mandarin learning with many formal usage of formal greeting sentence and Chinese characters writing.
