Update from the CCC ESL Team in the Middle East

CCC currently has a team in the Middle East teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) at a community center that reaches out to Muslims. For security reasons, some names and locations have been left out of this blog.

Things are going well here. We've started our ESL teaching and have had some good interaction with students both at class and while watching the World Cup Soccer games in the coffee shop.

God is definitely at work here. Each morning our devotional is just what we need to hear -- so exactly. And God is definitely using the Center and all the volunteers. Many friendships are happening, and there are opportunities to share and to show love and concern.

Today we went with Matt to the weekly prayer meeting with the believers from this country, which was at a local pastor's house. So encouraging to pray together in Arabic and English, to share our lives, and to see their faith. The weekend is coming and already some of us have arrangements to meet outside class with some of our students. That is our desire and prayer -- to spend personal time with them.
