Teaching English

One of the highlights of the last few months has been teaching English to some wonderful, talented, and highly motivated friends. They are amazing. Feng, Ping and Sky are the original members of the class and have completed the first course. Toa (left front) just joined us and is starting the new course.
(front left to right)Helen, Emma and Sahra sometimes attend. Helen usually goes next door to the sister’s class. The class is making great progress. Often one or more of the students come early for a Gospel lesson and most of the time, they all stay after for a Gospel lesson.
While the students learn English and grow in Gospel knowledge, the sisters and I make and use the Power Point lessons that we are converting to DVDs for the out bush family literacy project. These students will be able to use the DVDs for review and practice and we get valuable experience using what we have developed.
