English Classes in Lodz...

I'm getting old or I'm getting tired...or both! I thought I had posted this entry last week; but when I went to find it, it was no where to be found. I had forgotten to do it! My apologies to the Lodz missionaries!
During our last Zone Conference, we talked about making one of our best finding tools (English class) even better. We decided to 'pop' in on our Lodz missionaries to see if they were listening.
We were pleased with what we found. Teaching from our updated English Course Manual, Elders Godwin and Johnson were prepared.

Our advanced English class (which used the Liahona as their textbook), provides a way for us to virtually discuss gospel topics during the entire class....increasing our students vocabulary AND understanding of the Church. Above: Sisters Forsey and Tarasevich (Sister Smithee was returning from Katowice where she had been on a Sister's Exchange.)

I sat in on the Intermediate class where Elders Tanner and Neuner were teaching. They did a great job talking about an important scripture in the Book of Mormon...passing out copies so everyone could read along and discuss. They also were listening during Zone Conference as they implemented the teaching tips that were given there.

It is not surprising that we are teaching more and more people from our English classes. As we have a well-planned lesson, implement the scriptures and pray at the beginning and end of each class, the Spirit is felt in our classes....and our students want to know more!
