For all Mission Agencies in Australia & New Zealand.
Do you have personnel heading overseas to work with MKs as teachers, dorm parents or helping with homeschooling?? Most agencies don't give specific orientation for these workers that will prepare them for the unique challenges of teaching in an international school environment or prepare them for the unique characteristics and challenges of working with TCKs. This weekend is specifically designed for these workers.
The original course was started in the USA and a similar course has also been running in the UK. For Australians & New Zealanders it has been a huge expense to attend these courses on their way to their ministry location. The first condensed version was successfully held here in Sydney May
2009 with the UK couple who run the UK course. In March next year John & Janine Barclay will lead this weekend again in Sydney.
We would encourage you to see this as an important tool for preparing your people for this unique but vital ministry. Please pass on the flyer to anyone who fits this category.
Remember one of the reasons families return prematurely from the Field is due to children's education. Let's work together to see as many teachers take up the challenge of ministry to MKs so that we can keep missionary families on the field for as long as God wants them there.
