I keep hearing, "You know thees word! It is 'Easy, Peezy, Pompkin Pie!'" throughout my classroom this morning as my students were studying together for their last vocabulary test. It's been fun to watch their vocabulary grow and understanding improve over these very quick two weeks! The thing I will miss the most is the daily journaling with each of my students. It's been a sweet gift for me each day! I will also miss our time of reading the bible together and singing English praise songs. Below is a clip my student David reading King David's charge to his son, Solomon. Below that is a brief clip of my class singing, "Your Grace Is Enough". during our worship time in class this morning.
My kids have worked hard during this English camp and have also had a lot of fun in the process! I have always had such a high regard for my colleagues who teach our students every day, but that regard is even higher now!! "THANK YOU!!" to all of my teacher friends! You have a hard and WONDERFUL job!
Tomorrow morning we will attend the Closing Ceremony of the English Mission Camp, have lunch one last time with our students, then wave goodbye as their parents pick them up or they hop on one of the busses to go home. THEN, the Tall Oaks team will pack up, clean up, hopefully go out to dinner in Mungyeon and prepare for our Saturday morning departure for the airport.
Thank you all for praying for us. Your prayers have been a great source of encouragement to us as we have seen God answer prayers in miraculous ways this past month! We are all really looking forward to being home to share some of those miraculous details when we get there!
From a heart overflowing with gratitude and love for my Savior, Jesus,
