Over the last two weeks two American graduates Lauren and Andrew West from Colorado have visited Bethany to further their overseas working experience. Early this year, Lauren wrote to me after reading about Bethany through this humble blog. She asked about the possibility of coming over to do some volunteer work at Bethany. She then asked her brother Andrew, who incidentally has just returned from his trip in Africa, to join her on the Bethany trip.
The brother and sister duo have worked mainly in Bethany School teaching English to the children at both Elementary and High School level. Both were also teaching the children how to do a Square Dance to be performed on Bethany’s Foundation Day event in September. While Andrew, who is a football (Soccer) enthusiast, was coaching the school's football team, Lauren was in the library reading stories to the elementary school children.
They both loved their experience here and I’m sure they will talk about it for many years to come.
