Afghanistan

Afghanistan's history is characterized by war and civil unrest. 


Micah Global Foundation  had the opportunity to teach in Kabul in a private elementary school,  Education University, and The Islamic Law School. 


We moved forward in faith according to  II Timothy 1:7  "God has not given us the spirit of fear;but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

Asia

Since its founding, Micah Global has worked throughout Asia teaching English in places like Nepal, Vietnam, China, Papua New Guinea, and Afghanistan.


While teaching English conversation at Szechuan University during an 8 week course, we emphasized American holidays, including the values and traditions around Christmas and Easter and taught our Chinese students about various regions of the United States.


Midway through the summer, we identified people of peace (those who showed an interest in having deeper spiritual conversations) and invited them to study the book of John with us in the evenings.

Hauna Village - the future

Flying into the heart of darkness from Cairns, Australia, we landed in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, took a puddle jumper plane to Wewak then a two-day ride in dugout canoes and landed in Hauna Village our summer home. 

At 7 years old, Leslie, the youngest white child to ever visit, was nicknamed "butterfly “and immediately found a cadre of friends and curiosity seekers. 


As the chief cook, Margaret, prepared crocodile. (crocodile later smells through the skin-yuck!). 


Our team built a grass hut on stilts for visiting medical missionaries and assisted the missionaries in clearing the landing field for Mission Aviation Fellowship planes.
