That is fantastic! Where are you moving to?cjsuel wrote:We will be moving overseas to be missionaries next year. I love MFW and am wondering how to make it work without our wonderful library. Does anyone have any ideas????? We are suppose to be in CTG, just finishing a great year with ECC.
We are missionaries in Israel and have managed to use the MFW curriculum quite successfully with limited library resources.
We have an International School in Jerusalem and they allow us to use their library, small as it is. All the books there are in English. We also visit the second hand book shops where we have found a few books in English...usually not the titles listed in the TM but similar enough to substitute.
Whenever we are on leave (visiting family or raising support) I try to buy the books that I think will be most needed/beneficial. Thankfully we have several visitors each year from the USA or the UK and they bring books/supplies for me. I buy them and have them shipped (usually free) to an address in the USA or UK. Then having the books delivered personally saves us lots on international shipping and import duty (tax).
If you meet people who want to support your Ministry...suggest they help with the children's education by sending books. Don't be afraid to be specific about the type of books you want/need.
Is there anyone already in the area you are going to that can research what is available to you?
We will be starting ECC this fall. I am already making a booklist of "essential" books and other resources to look for while we are in the UK in August.
I hope some of this has been helpful.
I'm excited for you and your family as you start this new adventure.
God is so faithful...He provides for all our needs ...even books :-)
Blessings and Shalom from Jerusalem,
