Last week I started my practical year in a church (last step towards becoming an ordained pastor). It's going well - just extremely intensive! I usually spend at least 12 hours away from home every day, going from one place to another, doing stuff as varied as giving religious education classes, attending meetings, doing the readings at a funeral (I'll have to conduct funerals and weddings and baptisms and stuff myself in a few months' time), and visiting people. Plus office work. I enjoy it, though. :)

The wonderful thing about being a pastor, I have noticed these 1.5 weeks, is that you have contact with people in all the different stages of life. Also, I find that working in the church gives me an extra "push" to share the Gospel, which I needed. It's my job to share the Gospel, to pray for and with people, so no one can really protest when I do so! ;) I also like how when you're working in the church, you have many opportunities to witness simply with your life and how you treat the people you have contact with. Over here, many "church members" don't really go to church, or have little idea of what the Bible says or what Christianity is even about. But they use services the church offers, like funerals, weddings, religious education, etc. so that's a great opportunity to come into contact with people and share Jesus with them.

So I'm really busy now! But funnily enough, now that I'm busier than ever I've had another burst of inspiration for writing poetry... just lately I was running around the house in a rush to find a pen to write down the ideas I had lol.

Also, I've been invited to one of the church's small groups / home groups to talk about my Women of the Bible project. :) Which is awesomeeeeeeeeee. Except for the fact that I write only in English, and over here the language is German... because this is the countryside, not everyone will understand English. I only have one passable poem in German (the other 1-2 others I lost...............), and looking up the translations I made before, I decided they were all rubbish. I guess translating poetry is always hard; I find translating into German worse because German is a rather "bulky" language that doesn't work for all styles of poetry. So I've kind of given up - might look for the two lost poems that were originally in German (or written simultaneously in English and German, actually), or stick with the one German poem I have - or try to write a new one, but I do so dislike writing anything but academic papers in German haha... (Alternatively, I could translate into dialect, which is way more flexible than "high German")

I'm a missionary kid (i.e. my parents are missionaries) and cross-cultural kid (i.e. my parents come from different cultures) and grew up in Asia. I am from 3 continents. :)

I'm currently studying theology in my "foreign home country", being trained as a pastor, but I hope to return to Asia as a missionary.

My big project is writing a poem for (almost) every woman in the Bible. deng-li-xin32.deviantart.com/g…

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

Although I am less than the least of all God's people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ. (Ephesians 3:8)
