A safe way to teach children

Christian Schooling for Eastern Europe

Dorin* was troubled by the tremendous secular influence the public school system had on his children. As a parent and church leader, he felt powerless to reverse these teachings. This dilemma led him to seek a solution for his family and others in the church.

Since he was a CAM contact for years and a faithful reader of publications like the Seed of Truth magazine, Dorin knew who we were and what we stood for. He came to one of our Eastern European offices in 2015 asking for help, wanting something he could trust for his children’s education. He asked how many young people in conservative Anabaptist churches in America stayed faithful to the Lord and marveled at the answer.

Dorin’s questions and concerns helped motivate the beginnings of the Christian Schooling for Eastern Europe program. Your support of this program equips concerned parents with a structured way to teach their children at home, using the Bible-based Christian Light Education curriculum. More than 1,140 children benefit from this program, and only eternity will reveal the full effect Christian education can have on an individual, a family, a church, and a society.

Recently the Romanian government has increased pressure on families wanting to educate their children at home. Please pray that this program can continue!

Sustained through food and faith

Food-Parcels-for-Refugees

Samira* left school at age 12 to find a job, compelled by her family’s financial struggles. Three years later, her father arranged her marriage to a man she had never met before. Samira’s husband had a small income, but he worked to build a beautiful home for his wife and their four daughters. Then, when their house was almost completed, the Syrian war erupted, forcing the family to flee to Lebanon. Soon after they left Syria, their house was destroyed by a rocket. Lebanon’s economic crisis brought even more challenges for the family. Our contacts helped by providing food parcels and spiritual nourishment, and over time, both Samira and her husband came to know Jesus. Strengthened by their faith, they are now able to offer encouragement to others facing similar circumstances.

Syria’s violence and instability have displaced millions of people in Syria and neighboring countries like Lebanon, Turkey, and Jordan.

Handicapped Girl Learns to Read

Faith was born in Romania with severe physical and mental handicaps. Her brain had only developed to around 10 percent of its full capacity, and doctors gave Faith’s parents little hope that she would ever be able to do much.

Faith was enrolled in kindergarten for several years and learned to read in Romanian. But because she was neglected like many other handicapped children in Romania’s public school system, her mother regularly accompanied her to school and took on much of her teaching.

After enrolling in a school program operated by our contacts in Romania, Faith learned to read fluently in English. Although her lack of coordination at this point still prevents her from writing, she speaks well

enough to be easily understood. Faith loves to learn, and medical professionals now rate her intelligence above average for her age. Praise God for this amazing development!

Christian parents throughout Romania contend with a public school system that threatens the truth they long to instill in their children. Your support of the Christian Schooling for Eastern Europe program equips concerned parents with a structured way to teach their children at home instead, using the Bible-based Christian Light Education curriculum. Families register under an organized program that provides oversight and accountability.

Christian Schooling for Eastern Europe

Christian Schooling, Christian Aid Minisries

When the Amish and Mennonite people faced adversity to start their own schools in the 1970s, a cultural expert testified in the U.S. Supreme Court that their religion would be destroyed if the law would deny them this privilege. The Supreme Court’s final decision gave Anabaptists in the United States the right to educate their children outside the public school system. This was an answer to prayer, helping to protect their children from the public schools’ negative influence.

Today, Christian parents in Romania also contend with a public school system that threatens the truth they long to instill in their children. Your support of Christian Schooling for Eastern Europe equips these concerned parents with a structured way to teach their children at home instead, using the Bible-based Christian Light Education curriculum. Families register under an organized program that provides oversight and accountability.

Adi is overjoyed to provide Christian schooling for her young son. “Not only is Sebi out of a poisonous environment,” she says, “but he learns about God in school . . . It really feels too good to be true.”
