Helpful Resource for Teaching English Abroad on Missions Trips.

Serving God by teaching His Word in foreign lands is an exciting opportunity. It can also be extremely challenging, especially when there is a language barrier and the mission is short-term.

Teaching English Around the World: Creation Lessons for Short-Term Mission Trips provides 7 lessons based on the 7 days of creation that combine teaching God’s Word with teaching English. This book provides short-term mission teams with tools to teach English vocabulary and dialogues to students of all ages in a fun, action-packed way. Each lesson is focused on a day of creation, and the dialogues relate to what God did on that day. There are memory verses related to each day, song suggestions, and creative activities that reinforce the lesson and help the team interact with the students in a meaningful way.

Each lesson can be used in whole or in part depending on the time available with the students. The lessons provide the team with a platform not only to teach English but also to establish a relationship with the students.  The ultimate goal is to share God’s love with them and lead many to come to know Jesus as their personal Savior.

This book is available at Cross Books Publishing.

  3. This looks like a fantastic resource for teams going on outreaches where they will be teaching English.

    We talked about it on the latest YWAM Podcast and I hope that some of our teams will pick up on it to assist them in developing their lesson plans.
