Sensitive Education Situations

Thanks for responding to our ad for Christian teachers in sensitive, missionary, education, situations. These situations include tutoring, co-op schools, small schools, and one room schools.  All of them will provide the opportunity of a lifetime to work with children and parents. 

There are tremendous opportunities for teachers in places that we cannot publicize because of religious or political sensitivities. These places may be dominated by other major world religions, where open missionary work may result in government scrutiny and even persecution of local believers. We are limited in what we can say on the WWW so out of necessity dialog from prospective teachers needs to take placy by e.mail. 

Because of these challenges, the need for teachers is great, and requires creativity and adaptability. The availability of teachers can make the difference in families staying or leaving places where field workers are the fewest and the need for Good News is the greatest.

Please understand teaching in sensitive situations is totally within the Great Commission of Christ.  Following are a few Bible verses that support this work:

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. (Psalms 32:8)

. . . . . and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength. (Ephesians 1:19b)

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, (Ephesians 3:20a)

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. (Hebrews 12:1)

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion (Philippians 1:6a)

 

Please read testimonies from teachers already teaching in similar situations. These testimonies are from the heart of teachers who sometime past were faced with the same decision you are considering right now.  They went to the mission field as teachers of children of missionaries in sensitive situations and you can also!  You can really do this for the Lord.

Testimony 1

"This is the best job I've ever had, by far!"

Testimony 2

[As an MK teacher] "I am helping reach more people than I could ever reach on my own."

Testimony 3
