Annyeonghaseyo (안녕하세요)

The title of this post is a formal greeting for "hello" in Korean. Clearly, coming up with titles for blog posts is not my strong suit. As you read from Valerie and Hannah, today was our first day without our friends from Red Lion. It's been a slower day, but we still have a lot to be thankful for even though we have to adjust back to our Tall Oaks team tempo. Today we had salad, spaghetti, and garlic bread for lunch! It was great (:
I also treated myself to a hazelnut iced latte from the cafe! And this morning, I went on a run with my new friend from California. These may seem like small things, but I am thankful for them nonetheless!

We started our orientation and planning for the English Missions Camp today. When the students arrive on Monday, they will take a test and be interviewed to place them in the best level according to their English ability. The primary students will be placed in levels 1-6, and there will be 2 levels for middle school students. Right now, Audra will be co-teaching Level 1; Mr. Crismon-level 2; Hannah and Valerie-level 3; Josh and me-level 4; Mrs. Baumann-middle school level 2. We began looking through our curriculum and making lesson plans to help our students with listening, reading, writing, and speaking. Please pray that the Lord would give us wisdom and creativity to plan and connect and prepare for our students! Pray also that the Lord would prepare their hearts and ours for English teaching/learning and gospel sharing/living whether they are believers or not.

Grace to you and peace in Christ!
With love, Jaime
