Terebinth School of Discipleship
Schools have been out of session since March. This put our current class behind schedule. Since there is no indication of when schools might open, we turned to technology to help. Many of our students don’t have computers or smartphones, so online learning was out of the question. However, the concept of online learning gave us an idea.
Starting next week, the Terebinth School of Discipleship will be meeting in groups of 5 to attend modified classes. The teachers in the school have recorded their lessons in 1-hour sessions which will be shown via projector for the classes. The classes will have 2 teachers available for discussion and questions in each session. Because the classes are recorded, it is possible to complete the teachings in a shorter amount of time, and consolidate the classes to 2 days per group. There will still be testing at the end of each class, and the students still have a good amount of homework.
This is a brand new way of doing things for us, so please join us in praying that it is effective and useful for the students! We are eager to continue teaching Scripture with Scripture, even as we have to come up with new strategies to do so during this time.
