TCCC’s Pre-K Teachers, Brittany Kaufman and Catherine Chop, are realizing a dream by going to China this summer to teach English as a Second Language (ESL).  We are so very excited for them!  Not only is this a blessing for the children in China who will benefit from their teaching gifts, it is also a blessing as they return and enrich their teaching to our TCCC children.

Please take a moment to pray for their safe travel to Beijing and success in their English camp with Chinese students.  If you would like to offer financial support, please make a check payable to TCCC and place it in Frances Mathews’ box in the church office.  The TCCC will then provide a total check to the teachers when fundraising has been completed.

Below is the letter from Brittany and Catherine with more information about their trip.  We thank you in advance for your prayers in support of this wonderful opportunity!

We are excited to announce that we have recently been honored with the opportunity to teach English as a second language at a school in Beijing, China this coming summer. 

The students we will be teaching range in age from preschool through middle school. After developing an innovative 2-week curriculum, we will be working with 15 children with the assistance of a local Chinese teacher. This day camp creates a fun learning environment in which children will learn more about our world while hearing and learning English from native speaking teachers.

Because Chinese families value their children learning English from native speakers, the day camp draws children from many other cities surrounding Beijing, and serves as outreach for the school during the summer. Our teaching team will leave the U.S. on July 6 and return on July 24. 

In order to make this journey possible, we need your help in raising $2200 to pay for housing and meals and school supplies while we are in China.

If you would like to contribute to an experience that will not only be life changing for us, but also help the students we will be teaching, it would be greatly appreciated. If you would like more details about our trip before you contribute, please feel free to contact us!  

This opportunity is something that until now, we have only dreamt of doing and can’t wait to begin our journey! Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

Brittany & Catherine
