Go, Send, or Host!

Jonathan Winn, a member at Redemption Church, writes of this unique and wonderful missions opportunity:

Historically, when it comes to global missions, for churches and Christians, there are three options: Go, Send, or Disobey. Well, in God’s sovereign plan it seems that a fourth option has emerged: Host!

Over the past several years, more and more families from nations around the globe have been sending their children to the United States for a middle or high school education.  The preference of these families is to place their children in the home of a caring American family to help them both learn English and acclimate to American culture.

This is an incredible opportunity for the Church!  Christ commands us to make disciples of all nations, and the nations are coming here to live in our homes and learn from us!  Is there a more optimal place for discipleship to happen than the home?

Menaul School in Albuquerque is now looking for families to host students for extended periods of time – for 1 month (in the summer only), 2 months, or 9 months.  In most cases, a financial stipend can also be made available as we don’t want that to be a hindrance.

As the Coordinator for International Programs at Menaul and a fellow laborer for Christ’s kingdom, I would love nothing more than for these children to be placed in the homes of committed believers who have a heart for the nations.

If the Holy Spirit is stirring your heart, please follow this link for more information regarding our host family programs!

For the Kingdom,
