Here is Pastor Ben during our Swahili class back on April 2nd. Ben is a Swahili man who now lives here in Kansas City with his family. What a joyful smile!
Ben is a pastor of a local church and has donated his time to our group on several occasions to tutor us in the Swahili language.
Jerod was very impressive in his conversation with Pastor Ben - and I think I have heard Jerod talk more in Swahili than English, as he is usually so quiet.
The class truly enjoyed the lesson. Ben has offered to join us one more time before we depart for Tanzania - and recommended he join us for a group dinner, a good setting to practice our Swahili in action.
More info to come later about the dinner/Swahili lession.
