--Habibe Iseni-- --Kathy Smith with student--

"The Future of the Family" Kindergarten has started the new school year. We have 38 children enrolled with three teachers: Habibe (who is also the director and the creator of this school), Flora (a young woman who is experiencing her first teaching position), and then I will help one/two days a week. This is a project of Kathy Smith, a colleague of ours, who is currently completing her degree at Hardin-Simmons University. I am trying to fill in for her while she is on home assignment.

These pictures were taken of last year's class. I will post photos of this year's classes next week.

Our Trip to Albania with Iseni Family

August 25-27: We went to Albania with Agim, Habibe, Sara, and Jehona Iseni. It was their first time to see Albania - even though they are Albanian. They have always lived in Skopje, Macedonia. It was a wonderful trip. We visited with Bob & Janice Newell (our colleagues) while in Tirana, toured the museum in Kruja where we lived before the evacuation from Albania in 1997, and even found some Albanian books to use at the kindergarten in Skopje.
