All She Wants for Christmas Is...

Thanks for modeling Alma Watts (3rd grade)

And a teacher for the 2020-2021 school year would be great too!

As Julie mentioned in the video, when people in the States hear about what we're doing in Burundi, one of their first questions is, "What do you do about education for your kids?" Educating our team's kids has been a big part of my role here, along with many other moms and teachers. God has been so good to provide us with our special school, Kibuye Hope Academy, that is a unique hybrid model:  a small Christian school and homeschool co-op all rolled into one.

Most years, we have been fortunate to have teachers come alongside us in educating our kids. Scott and Lindsay are in their 4th year with us as teachers and Kayla is in her second. All three of these amazing teachers will be finishing their terms at the end of the school year and moving on to other opportunities. They have invested deeply and given generously of their time and talents for our kids, which has blessed our team's families and the country of Burundi. We're really going to miss them!

Given the number of kids and the range of grades next school year (1st--8th grade), we are praying that God would send us TWO teachers for the 2020-2021 school year. That would be a wonderful gift to our team this Christmas season. Please join us in praying for God's provision and sharing about this opportunity on social media (and with all of your teacher friends).

If you are a teacher who wants to support medical education in Africa, get to know some fun and unique TCKs (third culture kids), live in close community with other missionaries & Burundian doctors, see more of the world, and experience life in Africa, we'd love to talk with you and answer any questions you might have. Please contact jessicacropsey@serge.org.

It's always fun to get a peek into your school there at Kibuye. May God bring teachers who are just the right fit for your team!
