LONGER VERSION:
Local Friends and ESL Update
I had a few good talks with my friend Beth last week - if you want to know more, let me know!

The ESL classes have been going well.  There are several students who are ‘regulars’ now and really love the stories.  Each week, we give the same homework assignment.

Students have to tell the story they learned that night to at least one person.  Then, they have to give us a report about how it went the next week.  They love doing it, and come with great stories about the people they have told the story too!

Last week, one lady from Puerto Rico said, “I shared the story with my husband- and it really helped us to be kind to each other.  And, even after the story, I asked him the questions just like you ask us.  I asked him what he liked about the story, and what he learned about God.”  

How great it is to be reminded that His Word cannot be contained, and see the positive influence it has on those who hear and tell it!

I leave Wednesday for South Asia.  I’ll be doing training and consulting for two clusters of story projects in two areas.  My cousin, Roberta is coming with me on this trip!  I’m so thankful to have someone to travel with, and looking forward to sharing my “home” with her.  I am also looking forward to Roberta’s help with working with some of the teams!! :) Here is our general itinerary, in case you are interested!

Pray for my trip to S. Asia – logistics, good relationships, clear communication, strong health, sound sleep, increased time, stable electricity.
