Over the past few years Marina has taught quite a number of Loron teenagers and adults how to read and write in their own language.
It’s a long, slow process, but progress has been encouraging and currently there are over thirty men, women and young people attending literacy classes in several different villages. Classes can take place anytime between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m, depending, primarily, on what suits the students best. It’s now harvest season, so classes are presently reduced to a bare minimum.
Literacy is an essential element in helping the churches among the Loron people to mature. The believers need to be able to read and feed on the God’s word for themselves, and not be totally dependent on others for nourishment. Please pray for continued progress among the literacy students and for the Loron literacy teachers who faithfully endeavour to help others to read and write.
Here’s a few photos of Marina with some of her students…
