A teachers’ forum helps community ministry in Bosnia.

By January 10, 2006

Bosnia (MNN)–World Hope International recently hosted a Teacher Mentoring Team in Bosnia.

Along with the encouragement in ministry, the team’s fourth venture into Livno included a specialist in Children’s Literature and an elementary counting and math expert.

This time, World Hope’s Brad Garner was joined by Wenda Clement, a specialist in Children’s Literature and Lois Austin, an elementary counting and math expert.

According to the WHI report, these two ladies led seminars on story-telling and making math understandable and fun. They also hosted a “make it, take it” workshop for teachers to come into the ERC and make puppets, math games, and shapes.

The Teacher Mentoring Team brought lots of supplies to be used in the community’s classrooms. Teachers in Livno can now borrow these supplies from World Hope whenever they need them.

The idea behind their work is that communities are transformed when the power of Christ works through the local faith community to bring change.
