What about Thailand?
As I have often mentioned in my newsletters, John Middlewood, who with his wife Maeo ministers in the northeast of Thailand at the AC “Christian Mission Naratchakwai”, is heavily involved with teaching English in many elementary and secondary schools in the area around the city of Nakhon Phanom (NKP). His efforts to help raise the standard of English in the schools of the area have brought him into a close relationship with Education Department officials and principals and teachers of the province, and he is highly respected by those in educational circles.
John has recently sent the following advertisement seeking teachers.
These positions would be ideal for Christian teachers, who would be willing to assist John and Maeo with the ministries at the Christian Mission Naratchakwai during weekends and holiday times.
