Sheila Dykstra, a member of Hope Fellowship, along with her husband Jonathon Weverink, works with teachers in West Africa who wish to implement Christian teaching into their classrooms. They help with the development of curriculum as well as educating teachers so that they can better help the children to apply what they’re learning to their lives, instead of just reciting words that hold no real meaning for them.
