Countdown to Launch
I am in the midst of final packing here in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands. I share a home with my brother here. Tomorrow I will leave for San Francisco where I will rendevous with Margaret Roberts. We have received the initial approval from the local/district offices of Education to work with three teachers of English in the Tinh Khe Middle School. The National Ministry of Education has a designated curriculum for English which is used throughout the country. We will be using those books as the basis for our work in consultation with the teachers. I expect Margaret and I will have our heads bent over one of those books as we wend our way across the Pacific. We are both very excited about this undertaking. As far as we know, this pilot project of ours is unique in Vietnam. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we begin this work.
