Tuesday there was an English class at branch 2 that the Van's had set up. They had Emery, a member who speaks several languages, come to work with those who spoke only Kirundi. It was a fun time! The women in the Kirundi-only group did not know how to write their names. Today they tried writing their names for the first time ever. They were so excited that they then asked if they could write their names on the chalkboard. There were 15 people who came, and after we ended the class and had a closing prayer, they continued to sit for another 30 minutes hoping for more. They are excited to learn! Here are photos of the women who wrote their names on the chalkboard and of the entire class.
