What’s a family to do when they move to the U.S. from another country and find themselves in need of money for homeschool curriculum? On today’s Home School Heartbeat, host Mike Smith interviews a homeschooling mom from India.
Today I’m joined by homeschooling mother Abigail Andrews. Welcome, Abigail!
Good morning, Mr. Mike!
Abigail, your family is originally from India, but living now in the U.S. Can you tell us how a grant from the Home School Foundation’s Curriculum Relief Fund is helping you homeschool halfway around the world from your home country?
Yes. My husband Andrew and me, we are missionaries to our country, America. We came to this country with a specific calling from God, we applied for a visa. And during the processing time, we had to wait for nearly five years. So we don’t have any work permit, so financially we felt so hard. And we heard about the homeschooling. But at the right time, the Lord spoke to us about homeschooling our kids. One of my friends took me to the CHAP conference. And I happened to see the Home School Foundation booth, and the Home School Legal Defense Association. And I heard about the curriculum fund, for the needy families. So, we came home, and we applied, and we are so grateful, and we are encouraged that we have received a grant through the Home School Foundation.
Well, Abigail, thanks so much! It’s great to hear how your family has been blessed by these funds and homeschooling. Until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
