Joy's Profile

I teach Third Culture Kids (TCKs) at Rain Forest International School in Yaounde, Cameroon.  TCKs are young people who have spent a significant part of their formative years living outside of their passport country.  By spending my life nurturing and instructing TCKs, I support parents in the pursuit of their calling to international service and Bible translation.
