Fantastic Cross-Cultural Opportunity to Live and Learn
English For Missions (EFM) has finished well. There was progressive improvement in the students’ language skills; mainly in speaking, pronunciation and listening. They are more confident to speak with English speakers and make friends with them.
In their testimonies at the Thanksgiving Lunch, at the end of the school, they shared that they had learned more than just the English language. Due to the learning environment on our base and revelation from God they grew in their relationship with God and the people on the base too.
they had learned more than just the English language […] they grew in their relationship with God and the people on the base, too.
They felt that they are now better informed and equipped to live and learn in a cross-cultural community. By God’s grace and the work of the Holy Spirit, they were all willing to embrace God’s ways in dealing and overcoming their individual struggles and problems; emotionally, physically and spiritually.
As a school, we also saw the power of God at work. One student received a gift of an exact amount that he pledged for a Faith Project. God completely healed a student of a badly sprained ankle and God healed me of lower back pain that I suffered for almost 3 weeks.
After the school was over, three of our students stayed back on base to do a DTS (Discipleship Training School) and the other four joined staff in different ministries.
Please take note that EFM has changed its name to Communication and Cross-cultural Engagement in Christian Missions (CCE).
