I'm officially certified to teach English as a Second Language now. After completing 14 1/2 hours of training, the North American Mission Board has issued their approval for me to actually teach. I will have to come up with my own lesson plans for our trip to China, but with the help of our training manual, I should be able to develop some information teaching lessons that will be suitable for high school graduates and college freshmen.
This week we'll be submitting our applications for VISAs to China. Please pray that the process goes smoothly and that our passports or our VISA applications don't get held up in a lot of government red tape. I can't believe it's only 59 days until we go!
