About Rhonda Thompson

As a Spanish teacher, Rhonda hopes to instill in her students a love for the Spanish language and all the cultures of which it is an essential part. With new insights into other cultures, she hopes to raise awareness of opportunities to teach the Gospel to Spanish speakers in the U.S. as well as in other countries. She enjoys traveling in Spanish-speaking countries and learning more about their histories and cultures firsthand. Rhonda has worked on numerous evangelistic and medical campaigns in the U.S. as well as Peru, El Salvador, Ecuador, Panama, Spain, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Paraguay. She has gone to Spain twice with FHU students as part of the FHU Spanish Immersion Program.

Rhonda also enjoys spending time with friends and students, doing yard work, reading, sewing, teaching Bible classes, making teaching materials for Bible classes. But most of all, she treasures time spent with her two sons, their wives, and her 6 grandchildren who bless her life immeasurably.

Rhonda loves teaching at Freed-Hardeman and is very grateful to play a small role in the lives of so many great young people. She is also very grateful for all the wonderful faculty and staff with whom she works who make her life and her job a joy!

Rhonda has spent more than 25 years developing a 4-year Bible school curriculum called "Exploring God's Word." With the help of the men at Apologetics Press, and ladies from the Eastern Meadows congregation in Montgomery, AL, the curriculum (for 2-year-olds through 4th graders) is now offered to the public, for free, on the website of Apologetics Press (www.apcurriculum.com). Rhonda hopes to translate the curriculum into Spanish in the near future.
