If You Want to Reach Mom, Teach Her Kids ESL

Two women sit and discuss the Bible
All over the world, Christians are taking advantage of the opportunity to share the Gospel through ESL. Keep reading to see how TEAM missionaries in Mexico used it to reach Aitana!

Aitana didn’t know much about Jesus. Although she lived in an area of Mexico that was strong in religious traditions, her understanding of spiritual things was vague. Even after she grew up, got married and became a mother, Aitana had questions.  She couldn’t understand the emphasis in her culture on worshiping saints.

On a damp and wintry afternoon in Prague, Czech Republic, TEAM missionary Zach Harrod was running down the street — not for exercise, not to escape danger, but simply to go from one meeting to another. He and his wife, Míša, had just spent time with friends who were part of their support team. And now Zach had to hurry to his next meeting — football practice. The rest of the afternoon, Zach coached, recruited, hauled equipment between locations and led conditioning workouts and practices. Zach and Míša live with this interesting mix of ministry every day — helping plant…
