AIMKids Missionary Moments are designed to be a resource for Sunday School Teachers / Youth leaders, to help kids relate to the life of an MK (Missionary Kid). They’re intentionally short because we know you already have a lot of material to cover.
School on the Mission Field
School happens a bit differently here than it typically does at home. We are all homeschooled, which means that we do all of our school right at home. It’s not up to our mom to teach us everything though, we (the two older ones) have DVDs that we watch from Pensacola Christian Academy in Pensacola, Florida, then mom just has to help us with tests & stuff!
One of the reasons for this has to do with language. If we went to public school, it would be completely in French. Imagine, from one day to the next… you have to do school in another language! That would be tough. We speak some French already, but probably not enough to keep up with other students in public school. Also, we have always been homeschooled, even in Canada… so by doing it this way, it was one less big change in our life.
Do all Missionary Kids Homeschool?
A lot of MKs are homeschooled, but in some countries there are also international schools where everything takes place in English; often because there are other missionaries or lots of international workers in that place. That’s not the case where we are…
– Pray that God would help us with our schoolwork.
(after all, the better we learn, the better we’ll be able to serve Him later)
– Pray that God would help our mom as she helps us.
- If your students have specific questions, please done hesitate to email us and we’d be happy to respond specifically.
- Please let your kids know that by praying for us regularly, THEY TOO are part of taking Jesus’ love to France… they’re part of missions!
