The kids are back to school now, and I thought it was a good chance to give you a glimpse of Sahel Academy!
On August 9th, Nathaniel started 10th grade (ten fingers), Jonathan 9th, and Ruth 7th – all of them at Sahel Academy (SA) here in Niamey.
SA is an International Christian School, grades K-12, with about 150 students. The students come from over 30 nations! Many are missionary kids, others live here because their families work at an embassy, for the US military, for an NGO (non-governmental organization), and some are local Nigeriens.
The truth is – our family would not be able to serve here without this school for our kids. The teachers are Christian missionaries themselves, so the education our kids are receiving is coming from passionate, committed individuals. We are so thankful!
Here is a link to a video Sahel Academy Video Link that was made recently – (it is 3.5 minutes long) – and you just might notice a silly red-haired girl who made it into the video! (Ruth) This is better than all of my random photos so I hope you have a chance to check it out!
