How easy is it to take children overseas? What do we do about schooling?
Whether short, medium or long term, overseas service as a family can be a very rich and rewarding experience and children are as much a part of the calling as their parents. For many children these months or years away will be defining as they develop their own intercultural learning, worldview and understanding of what God is doing in the world. Each family will need to make decisions as to what is best for the family and agencies can assist with working this through. Dependent on the field, there are a number of schooling options for children ranging from home schooling, international schools, local schools to boarding schools.
