LADIES TEACHER TRAINING


Ladies Teacher Training December 2012
 What a full and rewarding three days we have had!  We had 47 ladies travel in from 9 different churches to attend an intensive training of how to be effective children's teachers.  Tom and Cris Geer (children's missionaries that train adults and help with Vacation Bible Schools and camps worldwide) arrived for the purpose of reaching African children and teaching adults how to reach them.  Tom traveled on to Tanzania and Zimbabwe, and Cris has stayed with us.

Verse Puzzle: Something they had never done before!
Cris did a wonderful job at giving the ladies plenty of ideas they can implement for building Sunday Schools and for getting the children excited about coming to church. On the last night, nine of the ladies came for baptism.  Pictures are worth a thousands words, so I will stop the words and let the pictures do the talking - except to say 'THANK YOU, CRIS GEER!"

"Dum, Dum, Da, Da, Da, Da..."
Homework: Draw 4 illustrations to illustrate a Bible story.
"Little Peter Rabbit had a fly upon his nose...."
Silliness is an important part of leading children.
They greatly value getting a certificate of completion.

"Whad-de-le-atcha..."
A mother of 12 and grandmother of 20. This is a very precious lady.
