Off the Ground, Part I

While we’re already into our third week, we’re actually only beginning to “take off” with a full-fledged teaching schedule.
Where would you like to go today?Yesterday and today students from Nan Jung (our host school–pronounced Non Rong) came for a total of seven 45-minute periods and next Monday students from an elementary school will be the first regular outside guests to come through. It promises to be another good year and After the teachers get a feel for the airplane ...I’m reminded of Psalm 19:5, a verse that came to mind during a jog earlier this week: “[The rising sun is] as a bridegroom coming ... we\'ll be able to give the students a life-like class.out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.” There’s a long flight ahead but the Lord has been our strength giving us cause to rejoice at the beginning of the race as well as afterwards.
Checking in before a flight ...Though Austin had only taught the airport classroom a few times before, he enjoyed “taking the stick” for today and conducted four successful flights in the Airport this morning. I’m really looking forward to doing the Market class with him some ... and clearing customs afterwards!day. I feel our Fashion Store lesson plan is at last where it ought to be as well. Today I practiced some different things for the peerless Mr. Brown Cafe and of course it brings a particular degree of satisfaction seeing satisfied students walk out of the newly opened branch of Mega Main Street, indoors!International Commercial Bank.
As our small crew flies on into and above the clouds, through day and night over uncharted territory, we rejoice that the Lord has seen fit to bless our efforts so far and we return the credit both to Him and those He is using through their tremendous encouragement and prayers. Thank you all!
Praise the Lord

    Those class rooms look realistic. We are glad it is giving all the students a lift. We are lifting you up in our prayers.

    That’s amazing that they have an airplane all set up so that you can go inside. Reminds me of something they would have at the Air and Space Museum in DC. I bet it is really fun to teach there at the English Village.
