Previously I was considering a program that looked so planned and structured, something i really crave. Can i really do MFW? Yes, I know I can. Just looking for encouragment. Thanks
MFW is very planned and structured. If it were not, there is no way I could still be homeschooling. I have an interesting school time with shuttling special needs children to and from therapies 5 days a week. It is structured and very well planned. You'll know if you can do it after you try.
Just for fun.....this is very long.....
Here's my story.
It was the year 2002-2003. Never heard of MFW. The 2003 convention rolls around. I take my deep breath and walk into the exhibit hall (with over 200 vendors and every one just right for my family -- that's a joke of course). Pray again. I know I'm looking for something to do for an elementary age hands on world geography program.
I stopped for less than 1 minute at the booth I thought I would spend time at. I just didn't feel like it was what I was supposed to do. All those months and months of catalog reading, online catalog reading, talking to people ---- all of it seemed unimportant at that moment.
I walk away and keep praying ---- God just show me what am I supposed to do for next year. This is a true story, btw. Not making this up. I came around the corner of the rows of vendors and looked down at the floor. Someone asked me the standard line at a convention "May I help you?" I answered (without looking up) I want a hands on world geography course aimed at elementary age children, with a focus on missions. Know of anything?
The guy just looked at me and I then saw the display in front of my eyes for a company I had never heard of and a program they call Exploring Countries and Cultures. I knew immediately I found my program.
Here it is 2006, I haven't changed programs because it works for me.
If you have prayed and the Lord has put MFW in your hands, He will make it work.
