We had been serving with our team of Chinese staff workers at our business for eight months without a holiday and you could tell everyone needed a break.
During a daily staff meeting we told our team that we would be treating everybody to a three day retreat up into a mountain city so we could get to know each other better outside of the business. Only two of our staff were believers so we wanted to make this a time of growing deeper in relationship with them away from the normal routine. Once we arrived by train to the city, we took a trolley up the snow covered mountain and were given an incredible view of the valley below. Everyone was silent and awestruck by the beauty around us.
After we treated our staff to dinner we then spent the evening playing games and took time to state ten things we admired about each other. Once the retreat was all over one of our Chinese friends Mei said with a big smile, “My heart is full. I’ve never felt this happy before!”
This was one instance that we believe Mei’s heart was able to soften towards God in a place that is in desperate need for someone to share the love of Jesus.
Mei is part of the 8,000,000 Yi nationality with few known believers.
