Our third ESL class - opening night

Our third ESL class – opening night

We kicked off our third ESL class on Wednesday night. The class got off to a good start.

A Person of Peace

There was a woman in the parking lot with her three children before the class. I told her about our free English class, and invited her to come. She came! Then she called two of her sisters and they joined the class as well.

The woman’s name is Anna. Anna said she is going to invite more friends next week. The Lord has blessed us with a people gatherer. She is a person of peace.

All the teachers at Fay Elementary School will be giving each student a flyer promoting the ESL class today, so we should have even more students next week.

Thank You Lord!

I thank the Lord for how he has opened the doors for us to expand our ESL outreach. We started 2013 with one class, and now we have three.

We still have a ways to go to develop our ESL program, but we’ve made some great progress. It’s gratifying to see the Lord bless. I’m so encouraged, and I feel like I’m just watching God work.

It’s fun to be on this journey with Jesus. I know a big reason for the success we’ve had is our wonderful prayer partners.

Prayer Needs

Continue to pray for our teachers, childcare workers and more students. Pray that we will be a blessing to the community, and that the Lord touches the hearts of those that come.

One of our Growing ESL classes

Today we made a breakthrough. Something we’ve been working on for a while. We got approval to use a classroom at a local elementary school for our ESL class.

The Lord Brings the Increase

This all started as we were going in the streets and handing out flyers to promote our ESL classes. We were handing some of them out in front of Fay Elementary school when we met the school principal. She got so excited when she found out that we were offering free English classes that she suggested that we use one of the classrooms at her school.

Since that day we’ve planned and prayed for the opportunity to start a new class at the school. Now we have the teachers we need and a place to hold the class. We will start our third class on Wednesday, May 1st.

Answers to Our Prayers

I’m amazed that God has brought this to pass so quickly.

More students are starting to come, and we found someone to help us with childcare. Wow, Lord thanks for your mighty and continued work!

We could still use more help with childcare, and more teachers, but we are headed in the right direction. Thanks for standing with us in prayer. It’s exciting to be on this journey with a faithful team that prays for us, and an even more faithful God who hears our prayers!

I pray that we will be a blessing to Fay Elementary School, and that we will be a blessing to the community. Lord do be glorified as we seek and serve you!
