Presented By: Ellen Hargrave
Event: ECHO International Agriculture Conference 2018 (2018-11-13)
This workshop will be a time to think through and talk about educating and raising the most important resource that God has given us, our children, in a culture other than the one that their parents have come from. What are some of the challenges? What is best for each child? Although each setting and child is unique, there are many ideas and experiences that we can share to help each other in the journey. Ellen will also be available for private meetings throughout the week.
