Originally in my March 12th, 2007 Journal [my 2nd year teaching at a univ. in eastern China]
This afternoon, a few students came over. We prayed together & gave them Bibles & then they headed out to the Education College [another university across the city]. They returned two hours later & again we met & prayed. They shared stories about the people they had talked to & given Bibles to. Good stuff.
Today I finished my last co-teaching with Dr. Priest at TEDS for MDiv students.
Dr. Priest was out of town today so I taught the whole 3 hours 20 minutes class by myself. The previous 6 weeks I would lecture about 40 minutes each week. I tried to balance the students having discussion and me doing lecture. And I think that ended up happening.
What I covered during the last class was:
a) priority of missions<– also, how they can be involved in reaching the unreached now
b) discussion on Dr. Priest’s articles on short-term missions & other things about short-term missions
c) discussion on how churches use missions budget
d) challenges missionaries face
e) in small groups they chose people groups from joshuaproject.net
& spent time reading their info & praying for them
f) reading & discussion about how they can minister in the most needy places in the U.S. & abroad: Quoted something I heard while at Southern Seminary: “80% of seminary graduates will minister in a place within 100 miles of where the wife’s parents live”
I was thankful for the opportunity to co-teach with Dr. Priest. The Lord pulled me through and I learned much from it.
