By Guest Blogger

Maggie Fox got a surprise when she handed her Muslim coworker a Bible — the woman told her she had always wanted to read one. So did her husband! It was a divine encounter that confirmed Fox’s calling: Combining her love of teaching with a passion to take the gospel to hard places.

Fox, whose name has been changed to protect her security, taught for several months at a school in a country closed to traditional missionaries. Now she’s going back indefinitely to continue living missionally while she teaches at that same elementary school. And she’s urging other professionals to join…

My husband was really supportive of this opportunity so after we'd been married for a mere 8 months, I hopped on a plain by myself, headed for Spain. As a high school student, I had dreamed of studying…

By Amber

This is part 2 of a series on teaching overseas in Italy. Read part 1 here.

In my last post I talked about being a teacher in a “locked ivory tower.” If you are like me, hearing about such brokenness typically conjures up tears as well as hypothetical images of myself in that environment caring for those students with fairy dust and happiness all around as if it were a Meryl Streep teachers movie.

You want us to move WHERE?

By juliemasson

I remember well the time that I sat down with Mark and Kendra* in a hotel lobby as they told me the unbelievable story of how they ended up with teaching jobs in the Middle East. They were seasoned teachers with growing children. So what had happened in their lives that they were now picking up their careers and moving to a large city in the Middle East, to teach? You see, when a person fully grasps that their life is not meant to be hoarded, but rather given for the cause of advancing the Gospel around the world, things change. Mark and Kendra totally grasped this. They were not deterred…
