Once again I find myself, as a teacher, with more ideas and information that there is time to explore in a typical classroom setting. Right now we are studying India, and I so much want the students to read one missionary biography. Amy Carmichael, William Carey, Mother Teresa.
But there is so little time. In a normal week, I am only with them for my subjects (writing, grammar, history, geography, and art) for about 10 hours a week. On paper that looks like plenty, but in reality? No way.
If I could whet their appetites for missions with just one missionary's story,who would it be? Who would you choose?
