dee cee three

Our calling in the ward is the intern couple who helps with tutoring. On Thursday nights, people from the singles ward in DC come and help kids in the ward (or not in the ward) with school work or SAT prep, etc. We come early and stay late, helping set up and clean. We get a free meal out of it and get out to socialize with people in our ward as well. It's great. I'm not sure what happens once school is out, but we're working with some kids right now helping them study for the GED, so that might extend over the whole summer. We also swing by Target when we're done. It's fun to get to know the kids who come. It's empowerment at its best, but it's also hard because you can't make someone care about something. You just try to help them grasp how important a GED is! We'll see how it goes tonight, though. It's definitely a contender for the most interesting calling we'll ever have!

Oh cool! I tutor a girl every week here, and I really like it. I feel like I'm making a (small) difference in the world.

Is it a GED? Isn't GRE the test you take to go to grad school? Just checking. I am glad you update your blog. Everyone enjoys reading about what you are doing!
