Hello All! Katherine reporting for the English Camp in Litin!
Today we started the English camp. It went pretty well! We had roughly .... *guesses* twelve kids [I just overheard Michael say that there were fourteen. I was close!]. We hadn't seen any of the kids before in any of the camps! They were almost all beginners and unbelievers. So we just kept them all together instead of splitting them into groups. First we "evaluated" them, to find out what they knew already, and then we had the opening ceremony. We got to sing "There's a melody" for the opening ceremony. It really made the kids open up. They were all laughing. It was fun. I loveeee that song. Michael hates it. But I convinced him to let us sing it because they would learn parts of the body. Hehe. I tried to get him to let us sing "Baby Shark" so they could learn family titles. He didn't fall for it. =P.
The kids are reallyyyyyyyyy well behaved! It's great. You can tell they're all there to learn. Ryan taught vocabulary first, and did a great job. He would act out all the words. The kids really enjoyed it. Michael and Michelle taught grammar (or "gramer") after vocab. The kids picked that stuff up really good. (Hehe. I know it's "well". Just wanted to make a lame joke :P) Then I taught Conversation. Which basically means I led the kids in exercises so they could practice the English they had learned. They did great! It seems like they've memorized a lot of phrases, so it'll be interesting to see what exactly they KNOW.
During the closing ceremony, Michael asked the question, "Who is Jesus?" and none of the kids responded. So it's definitely a ripe field!!! Pray for their understanding and for clarity for us in teaching.
Overall, I'm very excited about the camp!
I think they're about to serve lunch (I'm blogging from the Litin basement) and I'm ravished. So I love you all and thank you for the prayers!!!
