MISSION CAPSULES: Our gifts to Presbyterians Sharing ... sent Canadian Presbyterians to help rural Chinese middle school English teachers develop their listening and speaking skills. Last August a team of four representatives from Knox, Waterloo spent a month in Weifang, China with the Amity Foundation's summer English program. Both the Knox team and the Chinese students learned from the experience. Athena, a grade one teacher in rural China shares, "Learning about the traditions and beliefs of Canadians and comparing them to Chinese practices has shown that we are all similar; we all have the same goal, to share our love of language and to help our students be the best they can be" Janice Harper adds, "my own approach to teaching has even changed as a result of our experiences, and that is after being a teacher for 32 years!".
