(Brandon): That's my story about masks. (Renca): Yeah great story, so true. That is the second time for me but I love it. It's true. We use masks of the world but Jesus wants us to remove those and just be who we are. That's it! (Brandon): Right! (Renca): Is the soup ready? (Dan): Yeah. Looks ready. Go for it. (Gabriel): Hey. I have been thinking about masks from your testimony, And that dance we did before popped up into my mind. You remember that Identity Dance, Renca? (Renca): Yes, I remember the Identity Dance. People seemed to enjoy it. The puppet on strings dance, right? (Gabriel): Right! (Renca): You guys want us to show you our Identity Dance? (Campers): YEAH! Show us! (Renca): Go ahead and sit over there and we will dance right here. (Campers): OK! ♪ I've seen life through the eyes of a different soul ♪ ♪ I left by past so my future would be under control ♪ ♪ Now I've got nothin' standin' in my way ♪ ♪ I gave it all away I gave it all away ♪ ♪ Whoa I gave it all ♪ ♪ You've got me livin' how I've wanted All along ♪ ♪ Now all my tears are dried away ♪ ♪ You've got me livin' how I've wanted All along ♪ ♪ I feel so alive, alive Inside, inside ♪ ♪ I'm breaking through the haze To a brand new day ♪ ♪ 'Cause my heart has been revived ♪ ♪ How was I supposed to survive in this vast sea ♪ ♪ I was so scared my own heart would try to abandon me ♪ ♪ Now I've got nothin' standin' in my way I gave it all away, I gave it all away ♪ ♪ You've got me livin' how I've wanted All along ♪ ♪ Now all my fears have run away ♪ ♪ You've got me livin' how I've wanted All along ♪ ♪ I feel so alive, alive Inside, inside ♪ ♪ I'm breaking through the haze To a brand new day ♪ ♪ 'Cause my heart has been revived ♪ ♪ I feel so alive, alive Inside, inside ♪ ♪ I'm breaking through the haze To a brand new day ♪ ♪ 'Cause my heart has been revived ♪ ♪ I feel so alive ♪ (Brandon): That was good! (Renca): Yeah. We call that the Identity Dance. We need to cut off all the strings of our mistakes and get rid of that identity. It's ok, we just keep on going throwing aside all the false identity and labels. (Kari): Yes! We drop those identities and labels and.... (Liza): ...Excuse me. I am sorry but I really need to go to the bathroom! (Brandon): Don't get lost in the woods. Be careful! (Liza): I have a flashlight. (Brandon): Anyways...go ahead. (Kari): As I was saying. We put those identities aside. I just need focus on who I am. But similarly, sometimes we look at our own wounds and obsess about them. That not right. We need to open up and allow this wound to heal and become a scar. Do you want me to share more? (Gabriel) Yeah! (Renca) I am curious, go ahead. (Wounded 1): Who am I? Growing up, I had a family that signed. Aunts, uncles, relatives, they all could sign fairly decent. But then I went to a Deaf School... They put me into an oral speech class. The teacher had this look, she would always glare down at me. Every time I voiced something perfect she would get so excited. She would grab a star sticker and put it on my forehead! I would walk around the school and all the other kids would laugh at me. I felt aweful. And every time I voiced something wrong, my teacher would put a spoonful of stuff on my tongue so that I would gag and voice correctly. She would get so excited. But I just felt put down. Then I would go home and try to voice with my family and relatives, But they could not understand me. It's just better if I hold it all inside... (Wounded 2): Are you kidding me? Let me tell you my story. I grew up in a hearing family. They don't know any sign. I couldn't communicate at all. Parents sent me to a residential Deaf school and I finally felt at home. But it was not enough. My friends, they thought everything was fine. I seemed happy. But my summers were horrible! All my friends would share about their summers with their families on great vacations. I would just stare. During my summers I was all alone. My family rejected me. I would just sit around doing nothing! Until I went to college, and then things got worse! My Dad was a philosopher. He had this saying: "The more you suffer the greater the reward." So my dad put me in a mainstream college. The first day of class I showed up and there was no interpreter! Then later, I got a job and I was so excited. But two days before I was supposed to start work my boss emailed me. He said. "We would love to hire you, BUT we have no interpreter. Thanks for considering of working for us." Come on! (Wounded 3): Yeah. I've heard that before... "We will need to let you go." I had one of the top jobs in the world. I traveled all the time. Then it happened. I just all of a sudden lost my hearing. My boss soon found out and I was without a job! Talk about identity crisis! I started to learn some sign language but I was really awkward. Compared with someone who grew up signing, I was nothing. Who am I? Where do I fit in? I love signing and I love the Deaf community... I feel much happier now... But who am I? (Wounded 4): Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah Really? Who am I? I don't know. Seriously? I remember when I was seven, my next door neighbor was hearing and we would play all the time. One day all the neighborhood kids decided to play tag. We all enjoyed that game. While we were playing, I saw my next door neighbor start talking to another neighbor. I looked at them talk but I didn't understand so I thought nothing of it. Later that afternoon, my neighbor's dad, he was a doctor, he came to my home and knocked on the door. My parents are Deaf. They couldn't hear so they were writing back and forth. They kept shaking their heads and I didn't understand why. The doctor seemed concerned but finally he left. For many years my neighborhood friend and I played all the time, but now things changed. We played less and less and less. I always wondered why. Later, I found out that the doctor was trying to fix me. Fix, fix, fix, fix, fix! Just stop! You and I, we're the same. (Jesus): Hi, I'm Jesus. I just want to let you know that my Father sent me here to earth. He sent me so I can heal all of your wounds. (Wounded 4): You can heal my wounds? (Jesus): I died on the cross for all of your wounds so they could be healed. It's okay, it's alright. I just want to let you know that I can fully heal all of your wounds. You don't need have pain anymore. Hey, I want you to know I love you. You don't need to struggle so much. I can heal that wound. See, look at everyone else. (Wounded 4): Our scars... Sometimes our scars help us realize that we have an open wound. Sometimes our scars help us connect. We recognizing that others have scars too. Sometimes, with our scars, we don't fully understand why they happen to us. It's fine for us to remember our scars, but what we should avoid is leaving an open, bleeding wound. We can't be constantly obsessing about our wounds and letting them just continue bleeding. But we should let Jesus come in and help us close the wounds and be healed. It will then become a scar we remember, but not constantly think about. (Wounded 2): Our scars are not evidence that we are messed up people with problems for the rest of our live. No! It's evidence that God has already healed us. When we share how God has healed us, we glorify God. (Wounded 3): Yeah, when Thomas first heard that Jesus resurrected from the dead, he wanted to see and touch Jesus' scars. Even Jesus has scars. He never said we wouldn't get a few, but he did promise that he would support us through our trials. (Wounded 1): Yeah, I was thinking about how Jesus was in this perfect and majestic place in heaven... But he came down to a world full of sin and suffering. He was willing to go through so much so he could die for us, and we can follow his example. He doesn't focus and obsess on his own wounds. Instead, He looks at others around him who don't understand and show them love! When I look and see others in pain and suffering I can identify with them. Because he first loved me, I also love others. I can share my story, and when I share, I can help others. We can help each other overcome our wounds! I want to share my story with you guys. I realized that I had a lot of anger and resentment towards my speech teacher growing up, how she criticized me and patted me on the back, and always feeing discouraged. But then I realized that her upbringing is different. I don't know her background or her struggles. But Jesus has always been there and knows our wounds. He loves her just as he loves me. This has helped me to see from a different perspective. (Wounded 2): Yeah, that reminds me. I used to hate the world. I thought it was out to destroy me. But then Jesus came and touched my heart and changed me. And now I look at my family and I love them! (Wounded 3): Wow, I really want to share my testimony. I was angry and self-centered. And then Jesus showed me who I am as his son. I was able to take my eyes off myself and see him and realize I am his son! Now everything is clear. I understand now, regardless if I have a job or not. (Wounded 4): Right! Jesus has the greatest testimony. He died for us and comes so that we can share our different testimonies. Our testimonies are meant to glorify God. And show how God changed our lives, changed our hearts, and healed us! Jesus is the best healer. We shouldn't leave our wounds open. When we let them close they will become scars. It's not about comparing whose's scars are better or worse. We all have scars. We tell the same kinds of stories but with different experiences. Through those stories others get to know and glorify the one and only, Jesus! (Renca): True. Scars are real. We just need to let Jesus heal our wounds. That story makes me think of my testimony... What's that over there? (Jonathan): I'm going to go look, come with me. (Brandon): I'll join. You stay and watch the fire, okay? (Dan): Be careful. (Renca): I think they should be alright. Anyway... I already explained to them my testimony while hiking today, But do you want me to go ahead and share with you my testimony about, "Full Surrender"? (Gabriel): "Full Surrender"? What's that? (Renca): You interested? (Dan): Yeah, go for it.
