Many missionaries teach their children at home some time in their lives. Since the demands of missionary life can be constantly changing, the educational needs also change.
Diana and I had the privilege of representing New Tribes Mission at the annual convention of the Massachusetts Homeschool Organization of Parent Educators (MassHOPE). We had a good time of very rich communication with people who seemed to be quite serious about how they might be involved with reaching remote people groups with the Good News about Jesus Christ. Several people were already praying very specifically for the Lord’s direction in ministry for their family. We were delighted to give them information about New Tribes Mission.
We also had the opportunity to share the work of New Tribes Mission with students of two Perspectives classes. “Perspectives on the World Christian Movement” is a 15 week long class organized by the U.S. Center for World Mission where the students spend three hours a week attending class and complete homework learning about God’s work in history and current events from missionary presenters working around the world. The participants tend to be keenly interested in what God would have them to do in regard to reaching the world with His good news. We have also benefited greatly from the class.
