English as Second Language Classes
Praise God! What a wonderful first night of our 'English for Everyday Use' classes at the Grace City Community Foodcare Centre in Dee Why! Read an update from David Howitt below:
"I drove down there thinking about the 'adventure' we were embarking on - so many unknowns - but that's the exciting part - waiting to see what God has in store for us.
I arrived to find 6 people already waiting at the door, two of them being Polish, two were Brazilians, a young Indian man and a Peruvian lady. Some of them had just walked past and seen the poster. Gabi and I assessed their English, but the best part was just seeing the relaxed and comfortable dynamic already existing - they seemed to immediately be enjoying each other's company as they shared their reasons for wanting to improve their English.
The Polish couple were lovely - the man is 84 and they have been married for 60 years! And they are so keen to learn English! I think they are well known to Foodcare. Apart from assessing skill levels, people were just keen to sit and chat and enjoy the biscuits we provided. It was just a great atmosphere.
Some people were unable to attend the first session so next week I'm expecting more to join us!
So I think it's a great little group to kick things off on Tuesday nights and can't wait to see what God has in store for Thursday and next week when the lessons get into full swing.
Thank you so much for all of your prayers."
