ESL Training

Have you ever found yourself secretly coveting the spiritual gifts of others?  Do you wish you could preach/sing/play/teach like ol' what's-his-name?  If so, then let me assure you that you possess a skill, right now, that is coveted by millions, and by which you can make a significant difference in the lives of others.  And you can begin right away.  In other words, you speak English.

Next month we begin another semester of English (ESL) classes at FBC.  At the moment we could use a couple more folks willing to help.  No teaching experience is required.  If you love people and have a good grasp of English, you're in.
On September 13 and 14 a Basic ESL Teacher Training course will be offered at our local baptist association office.  I've been through this training and can tell you that, while it won't make you an expert, it is very good, and will give you the tools you need to get going.  You can get more information about it here.

A word to the wise.....we don't get lots of quality training events here in the valley, so don't let this one pass you by!

¡Viva México!

For some time now I've longed for the Perspectives materials to be translated into Spanish.  That wait is almost over.  The translation work is virtually complete, and there have now been several Spanish-language Perspectives classes held around the world, including one recently in Mexico.  You can read more about that here.

This is a big deal for several reasons.  Suffice it to say that if the Church in Latin America were to be mobilized on a grand scale, it would mean HUGE progress in reaching the nations with the gospel.  Please join me in prayer that the planned projects would proceed apace, and that many creyentes would catch the vision for what is possible.
