“You opinions about me does not change who I am.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita, Think Great: Be Great!
To be successful, you need to know who you are not just from the external or from the mirror, but from who you are in the inside. Our inside is what makes us strong. Our students learned about themselves doing the “Coat of Arms” activity. In their coat of arms, they describe their dreams, their favorite things, who they admired, what’s unique about themselves, their motto. In the middle of their coat of arm, they stick their very own photos – to say “This is Me. And I love who I am.”
I praise you because you made me in such a wonderful way. I know how amazing that was! Psalms 139:14

Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. (Sir Winston Churchchill)
In our class, we used the activities of Balloon Badminton and Dropping the Cups games to teach perseverance. Never Give Up. It is fun to keep going and fighting to get what you desire.
雅各书 James 1:2-5 Perseverance 忍耐
2 My brothers and sisters, you will have many kinds of trouble. But this gives you a reason to be very happy. 3 You know that when your faith is tested, you learn to be patient in suffering. 4 If you let that patience work in you, the end result will be good. You will be mature and complete. You will be all that God wants you to be. 5 Do any of you need wisdom? Ask God for it. He is generous and enjoys giving to everyone. So he will give you wisdom.
2 我的弟兄们，你们遭遇各种试炼的时候，都要看为喜乐； 3 因为知道你们的信心经过考验，就产生忍耐。 4 但忍耐要坚持到底，使你们可以完全，毫无缺乏。 5 你们中间若有人缺少智慧，就当向那厚赐众人，而且不斥责人的 神祈求，他就必得着。

In this class, we played the memory card game to foster teamwork, focus, and believe. We played it where one person try to find as many pairs as possible. Then we had the team to help him, showing the ease of success.
Beginning of the year. New students. New start. This week, we taught our students about Believe and Teamwork. We want our students to grow up having self-belief and learning to see themselves not just as individuals but part of a team community. With good beliefs and teamwork, success can easily be achieved. These two principles were taught using games and fun activities.
