What – Evangelism through teaching EFL (English as a Foreign Language) using our own popular Practically Speaking English curriculum which emphasizes the importance of building a trusting relationship and then sharing the gospel with our student friends. Hundreds of children, teens and adults attend each of these events where they learn some English, learn that they are loved and learn how to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ.
