At Bourofaye Christian School (BCS) Jonno and Kerrie Turk with their boys (plus one on the way), report life is good.
"The boys have taken to life here like ducks to water. They are mostly outside building ‘bases’ using lots of mud, and gathering supplies of large dried seed pods, storing it all for future battles.”
Jonno is teaching a variety of subjects.
“Most interestingly, I’m teaching history. I read the textbook before lessons and it teaches me everything I know!”
With BCS being a missionary kid school there is a high turnover of teachers and there is a great need for more teachers to start in September.
“Please think and pray about this and encourage any teachers you know who might be interested.”
But it’s not just teaching. Jonno and Kerrie are contributing to something much bigger, illustrated at a recent conference Jonno attended.
“One man told us that he has arranged for Christian TV shows to be shown on the national TV station in a nearby country. The Bible story cartoons are broadcast every afternoon after school.”
