Here’s our interview with Liu Laoshi:

Q: 你是怎么知道发生在四川的大震灾? How did you find out about Sichuan Earthquake?
A: 我去四川的是因为教会想要了解灾区的受灾情况,后来因为看到灾区同胞的需要而留在灾区。
We were in Northwest China when the earthquake happened and felt its strong shock-wave.The news later confirmed that the epicenter of the earthquake was in the Sichuan area. I went there because my church community wanted to learn more about the situation at the diaster area. After seeing the many unfulfilled needs of the disaster victims. I decided to extend my stay.

Q: 他已经在这儿协助多久了?How long have you been helping with the relief effort?
A: 三年。Three years.

Q: 在这次经历中,他所学到最重要的事情是什么?What is the most important thing that you have learned from your experience?
A: 在这次的经历中,学到最重要的事情是依靠神!
The most important thing that I’ve learned from this experience is to depend on faith.

Q: 最喜爱哪种食物?What’s your favorite type of food?
A: 鱼
Fish

Q: 最想去哪儿看看? Where do you most want to visit?
A: 想去的地方有点多,不过目前很多方面都不成熟,只好放在祷告中。There are too many places that I wish to visit, but in many aspects now is not the right time, therefore I can only hold that wish in my prayer.

Q: 说说你的音乐/教孩子们的经历。Talk about your music/teaching kids.
A: 对音乐方面,以前有过梦想,但是后来都因为环境和条件的因素,就放弃了。目前喜欢轻音乐。In terms of music, it is something that I once dreamed of in the past. However, because of the environmental conditions and many other factors, I have given up pursuing it. Right now I enjoy light music.

Q: 是什么让你选择踏上这条路的?What got you started?
A: 关于教孩子倒不如说我们是在一起成长,其实在这个过程中我们收获很多快乐。不过我们拥有强大的后盾:GOD,是他教会我们怎么样和同学们相处,并且用圣经上的话语和原则去引导他们去面对各种各样的问题。

踏上这条路,是因为 耶稣爱我!
When it comes to my experience in teaching the kids, I’d like to think of it as growing with the kids. In fact, we have all gained a lot of happiness throughout this process, and ultimately is possible because because I believe that we have strong support behind.
