This video gives a good overview of the time Tim and Paul spent in India in January.
Conducted a seminar for 20 pastors in India that taught on three levels:
1) Taught Titus (a pastoral letter from Paul) to pastors… camped out in 1:5-9, the qualifications of elders.
2) Taught principles of how to interpret the scripture to the pastors so that their teaching and interpretation stills will improve
3) Taught how to teach the seminar to my translator who is an overseer to the group of 20 pastors.
It is fine to be a doer or a teacher as a cross cultureral worker; but we should always consider ways to be a trainer of trainers. We need to resist the temptation to create dependancy on our teaching skills and instead train trainers so that we are not needed at all… then move on to a new location.
