Meet Timothy, the third-culture turtle brought to my class by Aunt Diane. This 28-year veteran of Faith Academy came back to visit this week and spent some time with my class today. She shared how third-culture kids are like a turtle- they take their home with them, in a sense. Ironically, Timothy was made in Indonesia, purchased from a store in Colorado, and will live in my classroom in the Philippines for the foreseeable future.
What a great way to end International Week! After celebrating the differences of cultures around the world, she shared Jesus’ promise to make His home with us, no matter where we are. It’s a good reminder for me, too. 🙂
