Why Do You Ask?

Geography Domain Begins

We have to start off with the basics.  It's like juggling...you can't do what is in the video below, without first practicing the simple moves, make it automatic, and then grow. You'll make mistakes, but you don't quit - you don't give up - you don't whine - you pick up the pieces, and you move forward to your goal.

We have 19 countries to learn, and we have been doing well.  We must know what the countries are, how to pronounce them, how to spell them, and locate them on any map at any time.  Then, later, when we discuss the "good stuff" we'll know where we are in the world, and why things are happening in these countries.

And yes -- there is some very good stuff coming.

Here are the countries we must know (a good representation chosen by the state, I might add).

AFRICA -
1-Egypt
2-Sudan
3-Kenya
4-South Africa
5-Nigeria
6-Democratic Republic of the Congo

MIDDLE EAST
7-Turkey
8-Israel (with the Gaza Strip inside the border)
9-Saudi Arabia
10-Iraq
11-Iran
12-Afghanistan

ASIA
13-Japan
14-China
15-Vietnam
16-Indonesia
17-India
18-North Korea
19-South Korea

We have to know our countries, in order, by Wednesday.  They will be our lyrics for Thursday. 

On Thursday, we have two special guests.  Paul & Anna Joseph will come and teach us songs to help us remember the countries.  I'll post the video of the class on Thursday or Friday of this week.  Here's a little about Paul & Anna:


Paul and Anna Joseph have been worship leaders at Fellowship since August 2002. Anna was born in Dalton and raised in Dalton and Ringgold. Paul grew up in an Air Force family up and down the east coast. They both have BA degrees from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, where they met in 1980. They were married in 1982, and have two daughters Sarah and Hannah. Paul & Anna are published songwriters, and have led worship and sung at numerous conferences and retreats. In addition, Paul has been nominated for two Grammy awards, and won a Grammy in 1987.
