Teachers Training

While waiting for school to re-open this coming Monday, we were able to arrange a 2-day seminar for our teachers this week. Two friends from SIM in Ouagadougou, Janet Haight and Paul Yalga, came to Yako and for 2 days our teachers went 'back to school'.

The subjects of the seminar were how to prepare Bible lessons, how to make learning fun and interesting for the children, and how to teach Bible verses. There was lecture and demonstration time and also practical application time where our teachers taught Bible lessons and Scripture to Jonas, Biba, and Ferdie who did not have a family to go to during this long break from school.

At the end of the training, everyone was encouraged and inspired to work even harder to reach each one of our children for the Lord. Most of our children come from Muslim and/or Animistic homes. We have a wonderful opportunity each day to touch hearts and impact the lives of our children for the Lord.

Ruth, I am always encouraged when I read your blog. These last few days Mike and I had the opportunity to speak to the 6th-12th grade classes as well as the Elementary School chapel and share with them the importance if missions and what the orphanage does in Yako. We shared pictures and stories and the kids really responded. We have teachers and students wanting to get involved and help the people and children of Burkina in any way possible! Our church's missions conference is this weekend. We are excited to see God at work!
