“The people in the camps need you – to hold their hand and say – ‘I am here, near you,’” says Fatima* a former ESL student from Moria, Greece, on the island of Lesvos. “I first met Fatima in the summer of 2018, as I was walking along the beach in Greece. I saw two women: one a Somali and the other Syrian,” remembers Liz Stegall-Lewis, Associate Director of Beyond Borders. “As I speak some Arabic, I struck up a conversation with these Muslim women. They were interested in learning English.” That led to Fatima being tutored for six weeks by Marg Lewis and Judith Lewis (Liz’s mom and aunt, respectively).

I came to BridgeWay late in the year and I slowly started learning about my student’s personalities, English levels, and family backgrounds. Before I had arrived in the school the teacher, Miss Bromley, dedicated five minutes of class to write “thankful notes.” Students were instructed to write whatever they were thankful for on a post-it and then paste it on the board. By the start of my time at BridgeWay, the board was almost completely covered with these small sheets of praises. One day, I approached a student and began a conversation. He was in 4th grade, his family had immigrated to Mexico from Colombia, and he loved eating waffles covered in caramel. He was sweet, smart, and very funny. I asked him what he had written on his post-it. He said, “I am thankful for my happy dad.”

In October 2019, Becky had just finished a unit on persuasive speaking and logical fallacies. The unit focused on why and how to recognize logical fallacies and how to avoid them. Adhita, however, didn’t agree. “Why should I not use these to convince others about my opinion, if they are not as smart?” she reasoned.

The staff from the US had a great impact on the campers’ mindsets as they faithfully acted as Jesus’ hands and feet while lovingly teaching English.

A little encouragement and equipping can be a powerful thing. Just ask Guilherme from Brasil…

From a young age Elise began to love and serve the Lord, but as she got older she found herself struggling with the reality of God’s grace. What does it really look like? How does God’s grace apply to me? A petite teenager with a ready smile, Elise is caring, self-disciplined, and ministry-minded. Although she was excelling in academics as well as in music and athletics, by the end of her tenth grade year she found herself worn out. Serving, succeeding, and maintaining spiritual disciplines had become a way to prove to God, herself, and others that she took her faith seriously. Yet, these things took a toll on Elise as she began to realize she was stuck in a fear trap, afraid of not doing or being enough.

If you’re ever introduced to Chayim (shy-eem), the chances are you’ll be greeted by his signature sweet smile and infectious laugh. This joyful second grader bursts with energy and a healthy dose of good-natured goofiness, but this side of him didn’t fully emerge until his rocky start to life began to smooth out. As a second-grade student at Arbor Christian Academy, an English immersion school in San Francisco de Macorís, Dominican Republic, teachers and staff have watched Chayim’s transformation since he arrived as a kindergartner. They can’t help but respond to his ready smile and celebrate how God has provided stability and a supportive home for this special boy. Chayim is of Haitian decent, but was born in America and brought up speaking English. For his first handful of years he bounced back and forth from New York to the Dominican Republic, staying much of the time with different relatives. This unstable start to life began taking a toll on Chayim and behavior issues came into play...

It’s been a year since a TeachBeyond partner school at Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, started thinking about developing a sustainable outreach program. As the team met, prayed, and discussed possible ideas, they were led to reach out to the local government school next door.
