I'm proud of my students when they use English idiomatic phrases appropriately...but....

So today I was in one of my group classes with two students, reading about The Triumphal Entry/Palm Sunday. (For those of you who are unfamiliar with the story where Jesus rides in on a donkey and people wave palm branches and give him a King's welcome, you can read the story here.)

I asked my reader why the people were so excited to welcome Jesus, and he said: "The people knew there was coming someone to be the Son of God, blah blah blah..."

So...he gets who Jesus was...

Where does one go from here?

I always say life in Brazil is never dull...but along with that I should include that Bible study in Brazil is never dull, either.

how cool! indeed long time! But look at you, all in Brazil (I can't believe you're still there... I mean, you left right after graduation, yeah?).

I am jealous of how tropical the place looks. It's so cold here.

I've officially added you to my Google Reader. Let's keep in touch!

(Oh... and I LOVED Joe's Italian. They were Armenian?????? WOW! I'm so visiting that place when I get back to the states. I'll have someone to speak Armenian with!)
