(Diary 1)

When I was 17 years old, I needed to go China with my Dad. First, I brought my foods, pillow, blanket and enough water. I took all my stuff to my ship and lay down comfortabely. After lay down, I ate a piece of apple and had a long sleep. After woke up, I was really hungry, my dad told me I slept 2 days. So I ate the fishes and oranges. It past through 8 days, I was hungry, sleepy and boring everyday. We could not eat much because we need to save our foods. If some bad happens came, we need to eat and save our power to protect ourselves. Nobody will believe me but it is really boring!! Everyday is same, Eat, Sleep, Lay down, and go to the bathroom! That's it. I wish I go back to my hometown and see my mom and eat fully.

Still everyday was same but finally! We could see the land, I couldn't believe it. I huged with my dad and we smiled. I am here to spread the christianity. All of my family members are Christianity. My Dad took me here because he wanted me to help spread the Christianity here. I really help and tried to spread my religion. First, Chinese did not listen me when I try to explain them about Jesus. But I think some of the people realize how beautiful are Christianity.
