OMF Missionary Kids

Dotted along the 1,000 km trip I got to see 11 of these missionary children and to hear about many more. In fact, in the not too distant future there could be as many as 24 young OMF kids here, and we hope for even more!

Pray for the parents as they guide their children through some of the challenges that emerge because their children may find themselves as the only christians in the kindergartens and schools they attend. As missionary children who will also return to their passports cultures, they also need to keep up with mother tongue studies. That too can be a challenge for kids and parents alike! Pray for much encouragement along the way.
