... week, and I recently began teaching English at the bible school in town, which is somewhat of a continued theological learning center for adults. It is MUCH different teaching adults than youth.

The most exciting thing that has come about is my upcoming work with the World Wildlife Fund. Beginning next Thursday, I will be spending three to four days a week out in the field with Sylvan, the WWF project coordinator for the ...
