Our First English Lesson

We had the experience of teaching our first English Lesson yesterday.  Every Friday evening the missionaries offer Free English lessons to non-Muslims.  They have from 10-15 students who attend regularly, ranging in age from about 8 to 40.  They are in varying levels of understanding English so it is a challenge to meet all of the needs, but with two sets of Elders and us we can offer three classes.

Elder Lamb & I taught four women from about 20-45 years old.  They were pretty good at English so we felt a bit under-prepared.  We didn't really know what to expect since it was our first time to teach.  The lesson we had prepared was a bit elementary for them, but we adapted it and felt that they enjoyed it and hopefully learned some new words.    It was fun to teach together and realize that we can do things that are asked of us, even though we don't know exactly how. 
I know that the Lord will help us as we try to do what is asked, even though we feel very inadequate.
