Next we ventured down the mountain a bit to the elementary school which Krida operates: Tunas Krida Nusantara Elementary School. This elementary school is a day school and the students do not live on campus (unless their parents work at the high school). We visited a wide variety of classes: English classes, Religion classes, and classes of all grade levels. I was able to give nearly every student a postcard written by the students of Briarwood and Oakridge in Moore, Oklahoma. In the older grades, where students had better English skills, their teachers encouraged volunteers to read their card's message out loud to practice their verbal language skills. It was so wonderful to hear these messages read and to see the expressions on the students' faces as they read the card and looked at the pictures. They were so excited that they were also trading cards to see what the other messages contained.

I also gave him a postcard from Mrs. Mosier at Briarwood with her school's contact information so that these students can some day send postcards back to Oklahoma.

Tonight Betty is taking us out for SPICY food. I'll let you know how that comes out.
