Nichole Barr is a new missionary with Hope International Missions. In preparation for her work in Mongolia, Nichole graduated from God’s Bible School’s Intercultural Studies program, served an internship in Ukraine, completed a TESOL certification, and taught English for a year with the English Language Institute. She is currently serving in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
This fall Nichole will begin teaching at the International School of Mongolia, a Christian college founded by Korean missionaries. She will have the chance to work with students from many different countries including Mongolia, China, Korea, Russia, and Kazakhstan. Most of the students will be from nonbelieving backgrounds. She is excited at the many opportunities God is presenting.
English is a great medium for engaging with others and creates a lot of interest in any activities centered around it. In Nichole’s experience many people are happy to come to Bible studies and Christian themed discussion groups just for the opportunity to practice English with a native speaker!
Forty-four percent of the world’s population is under the age of 25. These are the students of the world. These are the young people who will become the leaders of tomorrow, and right now they are looking for a teacher.
