I'm busy now preparing the room for teaching. I'm trying to utilize the space in the most effective ways. I have guitars, amps, keyboards arranged in a way that will allow both individual and group activities. I'm filling the walls with instructive posters and writings. And I'm trying to make sense of all of the teaching materials I've gathered here these 20 years.
I'm planning a dedication service or two for the new facility before I 'start' using it. And I have no chairs for seating yet, so activities will have to be for small groups at this point. BUT, we are in very good shape to minister to folks through education. In the past few days I have 'unofficially': jammed with a young bass player and guitar player, taught a young man some world geography as we cleaned a map, taught 2 kids to play Battleship, and heard a young man try to recite the first level of the ASAPH Bible Academy memorization program. That's ASAPH Teaching Ministry...all day, every day.
If you'd like to 'help someone in Haiti', think about sponsoring a full-time missionary. It'll do more for people that a box of crayons and soap.
