We love our teachers. Recently, we hosted a teacher training seminar with our elementary schools.

On a Thursday afternoon from 2:00-4:00 p.m., our Concrab, Bire, Lassale, and Bord-Mer elementary school teachers and school directors came together for an educator seminar. I opened the seminar by teaching the history of New Missions, and shared how changing the life of a child is a spiritual work, not just a physical or intellectual work.

Two educators from the United States shared teaching techniques and resources they brought with them for our teachers to utilize in their classrooms. The engaging activities and hands-on demonstrations empowered our teachers to serve their students better.

 The question was asked, "Why do you teach?" The teachers shared their answers with one another.

Tim Euler, headmaster of Cambridge Christian School in Tampa, Florida, asked the 36 teachers to close their eyes and imagine the person who impacted their life greatly. Then after they opened their eyes, he said, “When your students close their eyes and imagine someone who impacted their life, that person should be you.”

 Samuel Joseph was thrilled to stand with his class of students. They love their school and their teacher.

 Together, through our schools, we are making disciples, as this is the true measurement of success.

Finally, the seminar closed in prayer, as each teacher held hands in a big circle. Tim Euler prayed God’s blessing on each of them. Then, we surprised each school with video projectors and DVD players. We love our teachers! Thank you for remembering them in your prayers. ~Tim DeTellis
