Associate missionaries are a vital resource in TeachBeyond’s mission to take transformational education to places where the life-changing message of the Gospel is needed. They do short-term or occasional service in various areas of need.
While we were meeting in Mexico City, we (the TeachBeyond board members) talked about challenges, potential partnerships, and shared and prayed together. We reflected on the miracles already experienced, and those still needed.
One of the miracles involves two of our associate colleagues, Mary Lou and Megan. Mary Lou was instrumental in starting a school in Colombia years ago. Now well into retirement age, she travels with her daughter (who is fluent in Spanish) to help our projects in different places. They are helping with all the legwork for the BridgeWay North American School start-up in Mexico City. What an incredible blessing they both are, writing and translating documents, organizing meetings with local authorities, helping find a property, buying supplies, and helping in many other ways.
We are blessed to see God providing in ways like this as we prepare to offer schoolchildren in Mexico City a warm, welcoming environment where lessons are infused with a biblical worldview.
