I get the amazing opportunity in January to travel to Amman, Jordan to train the teachers and administrators of the an Arabic language program. I will be leading multiple workshops for the teachers and discussing curriculum and instruction design with the administration. This is truly a ministry dream come true!
Back when I was in seminary at Southwestern, one of my heroes Dr. Rick Yount shared how he had been able to train Bible teachers all over Russia. I was enthralled at how he took his gift of teaching teachers to the nations. I have been praying that God would be so gracious to allow me to do the same one day. And now it’s happening.
I will be providing continuing education for Arab Christian teachers who teach Arabic to Christian workers all over the Middle East. I will be investing in those who invest in others. I am blessed!
