We have completed our first day of service--and it was a day of firsts! It was the first time we saw our new programs in action, the first time a lot of people engaged in particular activities, and the first time some disciplines worked in Independence. We definitely learned a lot--all went very well overall, but there is also much still to learn and adjust! After spending time in a primary school, you have to respect teachers more! I heard several comments along these lines during the day. And, of course, the most rewarding point of working in a school is the smiles of children. Across the classes, the primary school students gave excellent examples and made insightful points. Based on our experiences today, we are even more excited about time in the school tomorrow! And I look forward to seeing our university students in action again!
