Meet Krystal Holst. She came to Centennial Camp last summer with her church group and contacted us about being an intern this summer. She is from Wisconsin and attends Grace College in Indiana. Last week we stayed in Panajachel because she was working at a school, attached to one of our churches, in San Andreas. They had her teaching English to middle school aged kids each afternoon. Krystal was very creative and played games with them to increase their vocabulary, such as Pictionary in the photo below.
Here, she is working with a group of young ladies putting a puzzle together by matching English words with their Spanish counterparts. As I said, she is very creative! She was such a success that the school (and the kids) wanted her to come back next week. So next week she will teach elementary school kids (English again) in the mornings at a public school in Argueta, then afternoon classes with the San Andreas school. Oh, and on Wednesdays and Saturdays, she is working with kids at a nearby church. Such is the busy life of the intern!
