So I had the pristine opportunity last weekend to help my boy Mitch, one of the Galloways who are here for two years as missionaries, with his physics work. The kids follow an online curriculum and Mitch had been struggling with his physics for awhile. Despite my complete lack of physics practice (other than the occasional losing bout with gravity when I trip) I offered to help and see if we could get through it together.
So I went over for the weekend and we set at it. It was tough going at first but thanks to the Holy Spirit within me I was granted the ability to oipen his eyes to the connections he needed to make in order to solve his homework. We did quite a few labs successfully and I even helped him make his life easier by making an excel spreadsheet to crunch some numbers. 2 for 1 learning experience!
It was as much a learning experience for me as it was for him,having only tutored someone maybe once before. I really enjoyed it. It was really fulfilling and fun and I thank God he gave us this opportunity. At the end of the day you could hear Mitch say this repeatedly with pride: Science is magic!
