For the First Time in My Teaching Career I Am Able to Freely Share

For the First Time in My Teaching Career I Am Able to Freely Share

Written by: Jensine Frenz Each day, right around eight o’clock, students begin showing up at the Loja Ministry Center and climbing up to the fourth floor where we hold classes. Current students range in age from seven to seventeen, but despite the large age spread, each student is part of an intimate group that feels like a family. After good mornings are said, we gather together for devotions and worship. It is my favorite way to start the school day because it helps us focus daily on Christ. Without a doubt, the best aspect of teaching MKs is that—for the first time in my teaching career—I am able to freely share Christ’s love with my students. Although their families come from all over the world (Australia, Ireland, Ecuador, United States), these students all share a special bond because their families are all here for the same purpose.

Meet Ann, a Teacher in Niger.

Meet Ann, a Teacher in Niger.

In February 2016 we asked you to join us in praying for more teachers in the mission field. God has been answering those prayers!

She said, “If Jesus wants me to come back, He’s going to have to show me by providing the finances.” God brought in enough support to convince her to stay—but not all she needed.

An Open Letter: Hillcrest School Jos, Nigeria

An Open Letter: Hillcrest School Jos, Nigeria

Hillcrest School Jos, Nigeria I have taught at Hillcrest School for the past 9 years. I began when my youngest of four children started grade 1. I have truly enjoyed teaching at the school for many reasons. Since all four of my children have attended the school, I liked being able to have a say in their education. As a teacher at Hillcrest you are able to be on board appointed committees that make positive changes to the school. I have been a part of several committees that have made changes bettering the school. I also enjoy being able to influence the future of Africa. Because many of our students come from very prominent families, many will become the political and business leaders in the future. Our school is very intentional at putting Christ first in all things. If even some of our students become passionate for Christ and take … Read More
