Supporting Missionaries, Proclaiming the Gospel, and Discipling Students at the International Christian School of Budapest.
I (Dave) am a social studies teacher and am teaching middle-school students at the International Christian School of Budapest (ICSB). Specifically, I am teaching ancient, medieval, and modern world history. I am also the Child Safety Officer for the school. I (Jenn) am teaching middle school. I also serve on the Child Safety Team.
Our vision is three-fold. First, we support the missionaries whose children attend ICSB by giving their students a world-class education (Acts 6:1-7). Second, we disciple Christian students by modeling a life devoted to Christ and by challenging them to think critically from a biblical worldview (2 Timothy 3:10-17). Third, we use our lives and speech to proclaim the Gospel to students who do not know Him (Romans 10:13-15).
Meeting the educational needs of many different cultures in one classroom is a real challenge. Imagine discussing the Cold War in a classroom located in a former Communist country with students from current Communist countries and Western nations! Perhaps an even greater challenge is effectively communicating the gospel, and other biblical principles, to such a diverse group of students.
Please pray that we will effectively support other missionaries, proclaim the gospel, and disciple students. Also, please pray we will maintain a healthy and balanced family life.
