Teaching the Chuukese Class

Eric has had the opportunity to teach the Chuukese Sunday School class in the Ward during second hour. He really enjoys it. He knows the members laugh at this tall white kid who stands up to teach the class. But his Chuukese is surprisingly good because of the awesome companions he has had. This is a great opportunity, because he and his companion come in contact with Chuukese investigators and Eric gets to use the language. There is no substitute for full immersion to learn a language. At the class he met an investigator of 10 years whom he was able to teach. He said the spirit was so strong he felt impressed to invite the investigator to be baptized the following week. And he accepted. Eric said it was an amazing experience.
