Have you taken time recently just to sit and think about what God has done for you lately, and then thank Him?

All the Things I Still Don’t Know

Written by Janine Alvarado. Original post appears here. Tonight my daughter came home with homework of fill-in-the-blank words, where they give you a picture and maybe a “letter” (or in our case, a syllable) or two as a hint. These assignments are new as she’s starting to advance in learning her hiragana. Some words I’ve just typed into the dictionary, and together we learn a new word. The problem is when… Read More »All the Things I Still Don’t Know

But there are also challenges that many TCKs tend to face and that doesn’t often surface until their adult years.

Volunteers Needed to Help Stuff Christmas Letters

Every year, WIM mails a Christmas letter to raise funds for our precious missionaries. In past years, we hosted a one-night volunteer event to stuff the letters. However, due to the current pandemic, this year’s event will look a little different.  Instead of stuffing the letters in one night, we are asking volunteers to choose a day and time that works best for them. This will ensure that we can adhere to social… Read More »Volunteers Needed to Help Stuff Christmas Letters

This year’s Orientation and Training week looked a lot different from previous years, but it was still a success! We moved the date back from June to July and implemented several safety measures, including masks and social distancing, to ensure the health of all who participated. We had eleven participants, which is one of our largest classes in a while! We are blessed that they graced us with their presence… Read More »July 2020 Orientation and Training Week
