It's been four weeks since the FriendSpeak ministry began at Woodward Park. Last night, 63 persons were involved. Randy Jacobs is leading an ESL class for people with no English background while a variety of trained teachers work one-on-one with people of limited English speaking ability.

The Bible is used as the textbook to teach English, killing two birds with one stone -- the teaching of English and the teaching of the good news of Jesus.

To me, it's really amazing to see the birth of a ministry reaping such rich dividends so soon! For example, last night we had four Punjabi-speaking persons who came because they couldn't believe English-speaking classes were offered on a one-on-one basis.
