This was our last Social Get Together for the year. Craig planned lots of fun including this balloon volleyball game. We had a blast. I believe it was our team (Gumby) that won!!!!

Social Get Togethers (LST 2010)

Social Get Togethers (LST 2010)

Part of our LST project includes organizing Social Get Togethers with all of our Readers. I organized two, and Craig Rapp organized the other two. We had lots of fun. Some of the things we did included: playing Taboo, Apples to Apples, Job Guessing, Who am I?, Pictionary, and water balloon games. These were four fun-filled Thursdays. We always met on Thursdays at 7PM so everyone would not forget the special occasion. We had several readers come. And I believe two nights had over 20 participants. Here are some pictures.

The Rapps Joining the Knapps

Well,  it is long overdue to update and tell everybody what we have been doing for the past month.  David and I enjoyed 3 busy weeks at the end of May and beginning of June reading with our LST Readers.  We already mentioned that we had about 40 sign up with us.   So we were very busy.  On top of that, we visited a school in Peine (Burgschule) and talked to 9th graders practicing their English. In between, Randy and Katy have had several grill parties.  At these grill parties the Smelsers invite their English classes from the Volkshochschule (Adult Education Center).  So we enjoy an evening...

Bring It On

Bring It On

Last night, we had our first Let's Start Talking information meeting for 2010.  Two years ago when we did this, we had maybe 5-7 people show up.  So needless to say my expectations for a big show was minimal.  Well, what do you know God proved me wrong.  Last night we had 38 people come to the meeting and sign up for English Lessons.  God is Good!!!  This is a way bigger turnout than I ever thought would happen, so I am very excited. Today I have started with my first reader, and all is going well.  Then I got a phone call, yet another person wants to sign up -- hooray!  Wow, now how to schedule...
