Beth Bearden’s ESL Class

IMG_crop2826

IMG_2821On several occasions Kevin, Jeanne and I have been invited to come and share with a class made up of about ten Spanish, two Italian ladies a Persian and Indian, all trying to either learn or improve their English. Beth is our pastors wife and like ourselves has a heart for the nations. On the last visit to the class, about a week ago, I invited all to our house for a party. Most have never been a guest in an American home. Some have cleaned American homes but they have never sat at the table or been a guest so this was our objective. We simply wanted to show them some hospitality. At first they appeared a little nervous but soon, once they relaxed and saw that we were just normal folks,  their cultural personalities surfaced and the  decibels went up considerably.  They brought some really great food items and we all interchangeably shared. At the end of the morning, Jeanne and I had invitations to the Italian homes which as you may know, we don’t mind one bit!
