Evangelinzing someone with a different primary language

(David Thiessen) #1

Hi everyone,

I now someone that doesn’t speak English well. He speaks Hindi. I was wondering if there would be any good resources that I would be able to give him.

Since a teacher is a person who explains in clear terms, it goes without saying that he or she is to have a firm understanding and sufficient knowledge in their area. In addition are important, the correct vocabulary and (inter)cultural competency. The answer shall come from what the (student) evangelist is hearing is most important: learning the new language or spreading the Good News. When this is clear, the order of action shall become apparent… does he/she need language lessons or is he/she to search for a fine school to learn how to share the Gospel in their own or the English language?
