Getting the word out

Yesterday I spent the day by myself in the area of Armenia Bonito getting the word out for the English class we start on Thursday. We are excited about this new ministry as it will bring people in to learn English - and at the same time we will be exposing them to God's grace. Our class will include instruction in English through bible studies, reading comprehension through reading of the bible, and many other things. This class is open to all age groups. We have this class from 9-11am. This is both good and bad. Good because many children will be in school, so mothers will be able to attend. Bad because many children will be in school and the children will be unable to attend, and many of the fathers will be working. In the near future we plan on having an afternoon class and a Saturday class. However, because of our constraints with not having a car - being reliant upon the bus - it limits when we can have classes. But we know God has great plans, and even if 1 person shows up - that's an opportunity to share the gospel with that one person. Eventually, once we have a core group of folks, we would like to start a bible study. Please pray for our class that starts this Thursday!

Hey girl...so exciting about the English class! I am so excited to see how God uses even more and more as time goes on and the ministry grows...I'm curious, do you know Armenia Bonito mean?

Love you!
