Homeschooled kids

Cloistered Homeschool Syndrome

By
The Foger family came to stay with us one spring about 12 years ago while they were on furlough from Mozambique. Their eighth child was soon to be delivered.

Both the people you just read about connected with their cell phones to a little device called the Gospel Box. It streams Christian media to anyone who connects to it, and all without an Internet connection of any kind.
