Over the years, we've conducted dozens of teacher training workshops all over the world. However, in December, we held a literacy workshop at our home in Arkansas...a first for us. It was a wonderful experience as we talked and shared meals with the participants before getting into the teaching. Rosemary hung out with us during much of the training in her high chair. It turns out the 5 steps of reading can be very entertaining for a 6-month-old.
One of the participants, Donna, is now living in Burkina Faso and doing literacy and ESL ministry. Burkina Faso has one of the lowest literacy rates in the world and we thank God for positioning Donna there for this strategic work.
