Today on Home School Heartbeat, Sandra Lovelace talks about her mission to support homeschoolers around the world
Sandra Lovelace is with me today. Sandra, what progress have you seen in the countries you've visited?
I've been to a number of countries, Mike, and in the expatriate community, I've seen missionary families being strengthened through their commitment to homeschooling while they're building new lives in this totally different setting. And nationals in Romania are a good example of what's happening in the newly democratic Eastern European countries. They're young in their Christian walk, but they desire to live lives and raise families totally committed to Christ. And homeschooling is giving them the framework to do just that. There's even a hint of willingness on the part of the Romanian government to consider educational freedom.
But in order for international homeschooling to succeed, all of these families need the tangible and intangible support, such as materials, information, and encouragement, with which we have already been abundantly blessed. We could use the Macedonians in II Corinthians 8 as an example. They gave of themselves first to the Lord in keeping with God's will, and then they gave generously as much as they were able and beyond.
Thank you, Sandra. Listeners, join us next time as we continue our discussion of the lives of homeschoolers around the world. I'm Mike Smith.
