Short term missions

Original message posted by Robi on 06-21-06.

Hi all. I am journeying on a short term mission and have been asked to lead three short 'day camps' (one hour long) for 50 Spanish primary children. And see....I don't speak Spanish. Where can I find a few simple lessons (quickly) as I have very little time to prepare? Thanks!

Being a monolinguist myself, I've found it easier to find a good interpreter. Is there someone in the church to which you are traveling that may help you with finding one? You can practice the pace of teaching with an interpreter here in the states with a friend who speaks Spanish. For the best experience, try to use someone who not only translates the words correctly, but someone who will mimic your movements, facial expression, and tone of voice as well.
