Literacy & Evangelism International

LEI Affiliate

We at LEI are excited about people using literacy or English as a Second Language (ESL) as a means for evangelism and discipleship. This sense of excitement is even increased for people who have taken one of our training courses. The Lord has used ILTI alumni in many parts of the world to further His kingdom through literacy and evangelism. It is our desire to keep in touch with as many of our alumni as possible and learn of their successes and struggles in their respective literacy or ESL ministries. We also desire to provide encouragement and assistance as much as we can. For this reason LEI is expanding the category of LEI Affiliate which provides a connectedness with training alumni worldwide. We would like to invite you to join our growing number of Affiliates in the task of diminishing illiteracy and thereby sharing the good news with many who are learning to read.
