East Asia Missions
Two of Lifepoint’s young ladies have embraced a wonderful challenge for approximately eight months as they will be living and teaching English in East Asia. Due to security constraints, we cannot give all of the details, but Somer and Carolyn are seeing God open great doors for the gospel while teaching English to children who are ages 2-9 years old. While there have been adjustments along the way, they have seen some exciting doors open for the faith. Aside from the novelty of being different, their willingness to teach English and learn the national language is building bridges to the local population. While schools in their country can be very poor and overcrowded, they are blessed to be in a new school complete with play areas, kitchen building/cafeteria, smart television screens for teaching, and a petting zoo that is coming soon.
Pray for Somer and Carolyn as they seek opportunities to share their faith, learn the national language, network with leaders in the community, teach English in school and with others who are older, assist the work of our missionaries living in the region, and cope with occasional homesickness (especially as Somer prepares for her wedding via Skype, etc.).
