English class. We are in a groove except our attendance is more inconsistent since Tsaagan Sar. Most of it has to do with class members have work conflicts (meetings) during our English class time. The Chairman will start up his English tutoring sessions on May 14.

Marriage workshop. We had our 3rd marriage workshop. It was a big success. The room was filled with mostly eager, smiling young couples soaking in all the information they can. We look into their eyes and see love and concern for each other. The future of the church in Mongolia is bright with promise. What an enthusiastic audience!
|Teaching relationship skills in another language - not easy but it is working|
We are working on listening skills, softened communication by the speaker, conflict resolution and negotiation. The next workshop is on March 23rd.
There have already been a few spinoffs as one participant presented our ideas to his supervisor at a mining company and they are instituting a training program based on the principles we are teaching. This kind of human relationship information is new to Mongolia. The Russians didn’t promote or teach anything like this.
