Big Chief Little Chief

25 Oct

The real chief presents the gifts.

My colleague, Bruce Bridges, and I were honored at the end of our Intro to Computers/Paratext workshop ceremony. I was given a hat as the “chief” of my class and both Bruce and I were given shirts to remember our Nigerian colleagues by. The feedback from the course was positive and they asked repeatedly if we would come back and teach the courses again in the future. I know that I will miss my new friends. Many of them have gone from never touching a computer before to learning a sophisticated Bible translation program in 3 short weeks.

We closed our ceremony with one of their favorites verses and proved that indeed, white men CAN dance! (fuzzy photos to prove this will be posted after Ken arrives!)
