I'm so excited - I have my own Sunday School class! Yes, I'm a little ashamed to say that my first class responsibility is taking place on the mission field (and in another language, no less!) but due to the wonderful and capable team of Sunday School teachers we had in Franklin, it was never necessary for me to teach a weekly class.
Collette Burch (HIM missionary, my friend and mentor) has decided to divide up her large S.S. class/Children's Church to be able to better focus on the needs of each group and teach to their separate levels. I have been given the privilege of working with the smaller children, teaching with activities and stories more on their level. Collette is now free to work with the older ones in more advanced lessons, question and answer sessions, etc.
(We attend and assist in the HIM church here in Salamanca when we are not visiting and ministering in our Bible Methodist Churches.)
Tomorrow will be my third Sunday "on the job" and I'm already loving it. It is giving me a wonderful opportunity to practice and improve my Spanish, and the little ones don't seem to mind my mistakes and blunders.
Thanks to Collette, I have a wonderful online resource center to draw materials and ideas from. However, I am open to any and all suggestions. If you know of Spanish preschool/kindergarten level Sunday School resource sites or books, I'd be happy for you to pass along the information.
A prayer request: My husband is gone this weekend, visiting our churches in the Saltillo area: several missions and churches. His schedule is herculean since he's trying to get to as many as he possibly can. Please pray for strength and protection for him as he travels and that God would encourage our Bible Methodist churches and pastors through him.
