Grant is in his second semester at Liberty University Online. He has been enjoying his education classes and praying about his future meanwhile. He has had some unique teaching opportunities come his way recently which we would like to share.
Calls of “Mr. Grant, Mr. Grant!” are heard every Friday at the Cite Lumiere Christian School as Grant is the P.E. teacher for the entire school from 11:00 to 1:00. Even Grace has been advancing her volleyball skills with the help of her brother! The weekly newsletter from her teacher always lists the special classes each week. Notice the last line:
Monday: French at 8:45. Library at 12:15
Tuesday: Reading Buddies- Grace, Ellie, Joanna
Thursday: French at 8:45
Friday: PE with Mr. Grant at 11:30-12:10
Grant has been willing to teach English to many individual friends since he moved here, but recently he has been teaching a group of girls at a nearby orphanage every week as well as another group of older boys. He will soon start teaching English to a Haitian girl several times a week who is living nearby with another missionary. She is in the process of being adopted and needs to learn English before moving to the U.S. to join her new family. Many of these teaching situations give him the opportunity to share the gospel or encourage new life in Christ.
Grant really enjoys interacting with kids and always asks to go along on Child Sponsorship school visits when he hears we have another one planned. The last trip involved a 1-1/2 hour climb around two mountains to reach a remote school. Trust me, he was the one leading the way!

We always enjoy your posts. We can imagine Grants hands on experience with teaching is giving him a real advantage over most students who are learning online.

Moving to Haiti helped Grant realize that he had the gift of teaching. Although he didn’t think he had it in him, we all saw this gift coming out!
