Today I was asked if I would spend some time with a young girl. She apparently loves to draw and has a very good eye for copying.
I felt quiet excited and nervous, I still struggle with the language barrier and do not know how to teach or what to bring along. So, I started of by praying and then asked her when I met her what she likes to draw. She said cartoons and showed me a beautiful picture she copied of Tweetie the bird. I went of to the Academy, Mercy Ships school and asked for some help. They lent me a book on drawing and I managed to make some copies and had the delight of spending forty five minutes with her as she drew, we never spoke much and I fortunately had some material I had harvested from the Boutique so her mom was able to do some sewing.
Next time, I would like to bring some drawing along so I can draw as well, I thought it might be a bit intimidating to have me watching her.
I do not know her story yet but I believe she will be here for a while. I will be getting a picture of her and would like to draw her, she has a very beautiful smile and has stolen my heart already.
We have a craft evening on Wednesday and I have also signed up for a jingle all the way to the Port Gate run/walk.
