From a teacher in Asia: My Bible class and I have been studying Romans. Chet said, “Guys, can I just be honest here? I’m struggling. I am a senior. People look up to me (I don’t know WHY!), but I see my life doesn’t always match the things I say.” I appreciate that kind of […]

From a teacher in Europe: About 50% of the students in our school live in dorms. I’ve decided to get involved in the dorm ministry as a way to serve the RAs and dorm parents and also as a way to get to know the students better in a less formal setting than school. Every […]
One young man, returning for his third year at camp, shared that he came to Christ after camp last year. He feels led to go into the ministry as a pastor, so he asked if he could give his testimony to the other campers. We never know what an impact we may have or how […]
As the school year begins, this is a good time to examine our classroom management practices and the expectations we convey to our students. Through the school practices we develop, are we cultivating “good” kids or kids who know they are sinners in need of a Savior? Do we inadvertently equate compliance with godly character? […]
Our team of ten spent a week leading an English camp in Manila. We used Narnia curriculum and an ESL opportunity to share the love of Jesus with 45 sixth grades from a very under-resourced community. All of us bonded with the kids. There were lots of prayers, laughter, times of worship, and tears at […]

Between mid-June and the end of August, 2015 we had camps in Eurasia, Germany, Moldova, the Philippines, Portugal, and Switzerland. We shared the love of Jesus with hundreds of young people while teaching them English. Over 100 staff from North America […]
From a teacher in Africa: Zee simply blesses you with her presence. She entered second grade shy, somewhat reserved, and very compliant. Over the last several weeks, though, she has blossomed into a child that exudes a contagious joy. She grew up in an orphanage, but now is a foster child living with one of the […]
What makes teaching effective? How do we prepare the learning “soil” for instruction that sticks in the classroom? Traditionally, classrooms have followed a historic model of teaching involving teacher-centered instruction or lecture. Questioning for comprehension by the teacher, practice on the skill independently to solidify the concept by the student, and a homework assignment to […]
From a teacher in West Africa: A group of us foreign teachers played a soccer match against some of our school’s national staff. The majority of our national workers are from a Muslim background, so it was an awesome time to show unity and God’s love. What an opportunity to begin making friends. Along […]
We so enjoyed our time of training with our teachers this morning. Seeing how they were taking it all in, laughing with each other, and asking important questions—in addition to their desire to learn—was more than we anticipated.
