If you’ve got kids, and if tickets are the same cost, might be an interesting way to divert your kids on an overnight flight. (Can’t wait to hear about business class passengers ducking to dodge in-flight testing of these new designs. :-) ) (Thanks Caleb!)

8) Children in Mission to China

Some would say that culture and language are best learned through peer friendships, mission is best done through relationships, and children are a gift of God that He can uniquely use in his mission to lost and hurting people. In light of these truths, Friends4One offers an educational, missions engagement program that connects American Christian children with a child of the same age and gender in China. These 21st century pen pals use the internet to build a friendship and share Christ’s love. Check out…

http://www.friends4one.org

to discover how you can connect more American children (12 and younger) in your family, church, Christian school or homeschool network with this unique opportunity to engage in relational, cross-cultural ministry. Write
infoatfriends4onedotorg if you are interested. (Word to the wise: In today’s environment, obviously, you’ll want to build in every safeguard imaginable so that these children aren’t misled.)

1) New Resource for college-aged Third Culture Kids —

“The Global Nomad’s Guide to University Transition,” by Tina L. Quick is the first book written to and for students who have been living outside their passport countries but are either returning home or transitioning on to another host country for college/university. It addresses the common issues students face when they are making the double transition of not only adjusting to a new life stage but to a cultural change as well, for even their home country will be foreign to them in many respects. Parents will appreciate the chapter dedicated to how they can come alongside their students, prepare them for the journey and support them throughout this major transition. The book is also applicable to families repatriating with secondary school-aged students as the psycho-social/emotional issues remain the same. See the book at…
