Teaching Hebrew in Renk, Sudan

One hope that I have for this blog-space is to promote our joint program with Duke Divinity School sending our students and alums to teach Biblical Hebrew at the Bible School in Renk, Sudan. A new team of ours leaves today, including one of my wonderful students, Elizabeth Felicetti. Her husband is driving her to Dulles airport this evening for a British Air flight, traveling to Sudan through London.

A few months ago, in January 2006, one of my former star students, the Rev. Shirley Smith Graham, went to Sudan to teach in this program. Here is twelve-minute video of her experience, which gives you a wonderful feel for what it is like teaching Bible there: Renk Video Clip
