Join Mike Smith and his guest as he talks about the challenges faced by homeschoolers around the world on today's Home School Heartbeat.
We've been talking this week with Sandra Lovelace, a director of Lifework Forum and founder of Project Prisca, a ministry geared to support homeschoolers around the world. Sandra, what do you see as the future for homeschooling in other countries?
First, we need to recognize that government oppression is a major obstacle in most of these countries. It's very different from the freedom that we enjoy in the United States. But as we've learned, intrusive governments can be overcome with God's help. Steady progress is being made, but it is very different from the freedom that we enjoy here. It's been over 25 years here, and we still have struggles, so this shouldn't be surprising.
However, I would like us to remember that supporting Christian homeschoolers around the globe is not just about encouraging a particular educational option, nor is it only about defending parental rights in other cultures. It's about promoting biblical principles for building families. As bridges are built from homeschoolers to homeschoolers around the world, I believe we'll see an unheard-of renewal in the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
Well, thank you, Sandra, for joining us this week. And until next time, I'm Mike Smith.
