New Loron Literacy Teachers

Eight more Loron men and women have completed the literacy teacher training course. We spent six days in Ivory Coast with a group of Loron folks from five different villages going through some basic adult-literacy teaching principles.

While Marina was teaching the literacy course, I taught two of last year's graduates some basic computer skills. We concentrated mainly on word processing with Word. We also covered some fundamental Bible translation principles such as accuracy, clarity and naturalness in translation.

We didn’t have quite as many attend the courses as we had anticipated, but those who did attend worked very hard and learned a lot of new skills.

All being well, literacy teaching centres will be established in 4 new villages over the coming months.
