I’m a missionary teacher, starting a class for students with severe special needs in Dakar, Senegal, West Africa. The families I’ll serve have literally no other schooling options, as most children with these types of disabilities are not accepted in typical schools. So this makes my classroom my mission field, as I shower these kids with the love and acceptance they so desperately need and deserve.
Dakar Academy is partly owned by the Assemblies of God and is a college preparatory, co-educational boarding and day school program which provides education for students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. Dakar Academy has approximately 200 students, coming from approximately 30 different countries and 5 different continents. Talk about diversity!
Students are the children of missionaries, various embassies’ personnel, and other businessmen. While the majority do come from Christian missionary homes, not all do. Therefore, it is even more of a blessing to teach using a Christian curriculum. My classroom will become part of my mission field, as I get to teach the love of the ONE TRUE GOD and the Bible to students who may have never had a chance to learn the TRUTH otherwise.What a blessing!
