Journey to Jordan

Petra

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!
