The volunteers from National Dong Hwa University have a long-term working relationship in tutoring the youths at the Mustard Seed Youth Home (Hualien). Apart from helping them improve academically, these volunteers constantly encourage teenagers to promote confidence and interest in various subjects. This semester has seen 39 volunteers in tutoring, which far exceeded the usual number of 25. We are heartened to see such positive spirits in the home. One of the teenagers, Xiao Xuan, was originally dropping out of middle school. However, she was determined in graduating and worked hard towards her goal. She was able to pass all the required examinations and eventually graduated with much gratitude for the volunteers who supported and encouraged her along the way.

As the semester draws near to the end, the volunteers from National Dong Hwa University brought the youths for a college tour.  From exploring the library and visiting various faculties, the teens were able to learn a lot about college life through the sharing by the volunteers. This college tour was able to intrigue and encourage the youths to pursue higher education as they realized the enriching impact of university. They were able to understand that with effort, it isn't difficult to enter university. After the tour, the volunteers and teens were able to enjoy a meal at the Baptist Church. They also played exciting games and their joy was evident in their never-ending laughter.

The volunteers gave the youths advice and encouragement, in support of pursuing their dreams and ambitions. The youths also shared what they have learnt so fair as well as ways to improve themselves, which represent the growing self-confidence they have and a hope for their future. At the end of the dinner and games session, the pastor also wished the youths all the best and hope that God will always be with them, keeping them warm in their hearts.

We invite you to support these youths in need as they grow up.

With the right guidance, they will be able to grow in the right direction, and away from their baggage.

We hope that they will do the same, protecting and helping others in need in time to come!

你要盡心、盡性、盡 意、盡力愛主 ─ 你的神。其次就是說:要愛人如己。(馬可福音12章30-31節)

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, You will love your neighbor as yourself. (Mark 12:30-31)
