This year, things were gonna be different. I’ve been in a weight loss competition for the past four months and I’ve lost a lot of weight. So much so […]

A Whole New World

A Whole New World

Like Ria, many people aren’t sure how to understand the work of eDOT. A missionary working in technology can be a difficult concept to grasp. Such a role is not traditional, it is not focused on a specific people group or country, and in fact, it often doesn’t include face-to-face interaction in all. How can such group call themselves missionaries? How can such people be helping people and […]

No matter how good the curriculum is, it is essentially a vehicle to all the teachers and other leaders to connect with the kids. One of the benefits of working at […]

Breaking Ribs for the Team

Breaking Ribs for the Team

Let’s talk about morale for a moment. Sometimes, you just have to have fun. You have to break down the wall of roles, positions, etc. and just relax. Well, I have to say that our team excelled in this. It’s not easy to switch between being the teacher in the morning and being someone fun to hang out with in the afternoon/evening, but our teachers did just that. […]
