Phillip and I had already been talking to one family about the idea.
So we told Uncle Charlie that we had come up with the idea of opening up "our home" (the one being graciously loaned to us =) one night a week for a couple hours and having the Children come to our house.
We started these "classes" in our home and have had 2 so far. The Lord is helping us.
We practice English with them, and help them with their homework if they need help, etc. for a couple hours.
Of course, you know me, I look forward to serving them a simple snack each time as well. =)
~Here's my table the first evening. I just served cut up melon, grapes, grilled cheese sandwiches, a cold drink, and hot Chinese green tea.
(Caro found the way I did "grilled cheese" different, but she like it. Here they don't butter the outside of their breads, they just spray the pan with "Pam" for the outside, but spread Mayo on the insides of their breads.
I find it fun and interesting to learn the different ways that people cook in different countries. = )~
Uncle Charlie said that when he moved to the USA to get his masters he didn't understand United States English, although he had taken English for years in Argentina, since he had learned hearing the Argentine accent of his English teacher.
U. Charlie wants these children to hear and learn how we Americans pronounce words, to help their English be more "well-rounded!" =)
~We enjoy having these children in our home. They have so much potential. Can you imagine what God can do with the children in this circle (ours included) if they will live their lives for Him?
God can use each one of them to touch MANY lives for Christ! =)
PLEASE PRAY FOR EACH ONE OF US THAT MEET ON THESE EVENINGS!~
