Calexico Mission School Educates Students Across the Border Using Remote Instruction
Calexico Mission School continues its efforts to educate students from across the border. Even in the midst of a pandemic and the many challenges that come with it, God has continued to bless their school community. A weak economy and border closures could not deter their five kindergarten families from entrusting their children to the school’s care this year. In addition to all of those important things you learn in kindergarten, the youngest members of the CMS family are also learning English and about God. Remote instruction has not stopped the CMS educators from pouring themselves into their classes and taking advantage of every opportunity to share the gospel with students. Emmanuel, a third grader, recently shared his bible/art project after learning about God’s most precious gift—Jesus dying on the cross for our sins in order to give us the opportunity to spend eternity with God, and in a place without COVID.
