Dinner with several of our students gave us an opportunity to sample tongue for the first time…imagine a slab of cold roast beef with no real flavor. Delish!
During our most recent class on January 21, 2014 at a local university, we were reviewing the lessons from the semester. The students learned about expressing their opinions and in this review we asked them their opinions on how to make our lessons better. There were many positive comments from the students about how much they love our classes. One student in particular said something that reminds us of the impact we are hoping to have here. She said, “I feel better about myself because of your classes. I arrive often overwhelmed with problems, but I leave with a new attitude and a new hope.” Though we are teaching English, we praise God that we have had an opportunity to share about Him and to offer hope to these students. We pray that many of them would find the ultimate source of hope through a relationship with Jesus.
Another minute of a day in our city. Pray for these people, that their hearts would be softened towards His Spirit at work.
We enjoyed a time of celebrating Christmas with our students from our various classes held at our Center. We invited them along with their families to join us for a time of appreciating the gift of Christmas. It’s our desire to continue to deepen our relationships beyond the classroom setting so we can share “life” with our students.
