(Ivory Coast)–The lack of teachers in the Ivory Coast is taking missionaries away from ministry. According to New Tribes Mission officials, the school year began in August without a teacher for elementary students, so they’re now being home schooled. Also lacking is a high school English teacher, so someone who speaks English as a second language is teaching some of the classes. The school plays a vital role in allowing missionaries to stay in the field. Pray that teachers can be found to fill these needed positions.
