Q Place for ESL!

By Fran Goodrich

Carol Busman, introduced to Q Place during her husband’s graduate school days in Iowa in the 80’s, now uses her Q Place training to reach out to students here at the University of Minnesota. Using our Simplified English Mark guide, she offers international students an opportunity to practice their English during the Sunday school hour at their church near campus. Recently, she had 30 professors from China, here for only a three-month stay, come faithfully to the class. Sharp thinkers in such disciplines as math, science, cardiology, and engineering, they also gave diligent thought to studying God’s word in this “English enrichment class” and at the end, clutching the study guides to their chests, asked if they could take them back with them! May God continue to multiply in China the great work He began here in Minnesota through Carol’s faithfulness and hospitality.
