Dear believers in grace,
Children's Class at the Tin Shack Village
Last month we continued teaching at the tin shack village three times a week. Every third day is a test day. Maybe you've never seen children who are so eager to take a test! That's because we give them rewards for each correct answer, such as pens, balloons, and snacks. Each time we pray before class and teach them the Bible also. Our youngest student is 5 years old and the oldest is 12 years old. I'm attaching a video of the 5 year old here saying her ABCs. Her two older siblings are also in our class and she does a pretty good job keeping up with them and with the other older children.

The coming of Brother Geoff Toole this April 14-15 was a blessing. We visited the four sick children at their home. (Rialyn Cali, Romar Ibanez, Shyrose Baladbad, Jenna rose Romero). They are on our main concern, Bro. Geoff pray for them and brought encouraging words to their family. He also lead us a Bible Seminar. The attendance were more than 35
including mothers, one pastor's wife, and young peoples. Every one received additional knowledge from the lessons of God's word and we all had a happy fellowship.
The floor is now filled and will be compacted on Monday. Then a layer of sand before the water proof is layed then the slab is poured. The building which is basically a large room will be tiles and the walls completed before plastering. Then is the inside walling, doors and ceiling. Then we can move in (Please Jesus). The build begins with prayer every day.
Dear believers in grace,
Yesterday was the first day of the term for me at the college.Ã‚Â This term I'm just teaching 4 hours a week instead of 6 like last term.Ã‚Â And, I've decided to drop the junior high classes.Ã‚Â Last term at the college, out of 44 students, I gave 24 of them F's.Ã‚Â Compared to my university classes of old, the most I failed in one term was 9 students from about the same # of students.Ã‚Â I simplified my college class as much as I could (e.g. at the university I taught and tested the students on about 600 new words, whereas at the college only about 100 new words).Ã‚Â So, I think the F's were justified.Ã‚Â This term I have most of the same students.
