2020 was a difficult year for the students at The Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) at the Presidio of Monterey (POM). Starting mid-March 2020, all the classes were conducted virtually.
I am also teaching my world religion classes virtually through Microsoft Teams (MS Teams). Our chapel services have also gone virtual. It has been a challenge to stay connected with some of the congregation, specifically the retirees and Department of the Army civilians (staff and faculty).
Despite all the challenges, the Lord continues to bless us with health and an abundance of creative ministry opportunities.
One of the greatest blessings this quarter was the opportunity to lead a Soldier to Christ using MS Teams. We talked several times virtually and he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior.
Please pray for the physical and spiritual health of my family, the students, and staff at DLI, along with the chaplain team at the POM. Please pray for a safe transition back into the classroom.
