Covid-19 transformed the Internationals Classes in the spring and fall of 2020 to a virtual format. Nevertheless, Internationals in the USA and back in their home countries are joining and are still hungry for friendship and help with conversational English. This transformation provided an even greater opportunity to offer fellowship, help with English, and sharing of the Gospel!
To reach International Partners at a more convenient time for them, classes are now offered on both Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. and Thursday mornings at 7 a.m. for those who had returned home or are still in the USA. Remarkably, along with many former old friends, a dozen new International Partners have joined our classes from China, Columbia, Honduras, and Brazil.
We are praying for new American Partners to help with our aggressive plans for 2021. Assuming Covid-19 gets under control in the next few months, our weekly Tuesday night classes at the church will launch with a new twist. Classes will also be offered via video meetings for those not able to be in class whether out of Jackson or at home attending to parenting duties. Those joining by Zoom will meet in “breakout rooms” with American Partners and those actually in the class will again meet in person for “one-on-one” time as we have in the past. Portions of each classroom presentation will be recorded and offered again during our new Thursday morning virtual classes.
Without leaving Jackson (or your home) you can answer God’s calling to love our international neighbors by helping them with their English. By the power of Holy Spirit we are praying that as has happened in past years, many will become a part of God’s family for eternity.
If you can help on Tuesday nights in person or through virtual meetings or Thursday mornings via Zoom, please contact the Mission and Outreach Department at FPC.
