Job Opening:

Chinle Adventist School needs a fulltime teacher for the 2015-16 school year.  Our current teacher, Annalee Whitaker, is “retiring” to be fulltime mommy for their two adoptive Navajo children – and their third child due to arrive in October!  She and her family will continue to live on campus and she will available to the new teacher for continuity and support, but cannot teach full time next year.

  • Do you know a certified elementary teacher who feels called to cross-cultural teaching ministry?  (Maybe yourself!)
  • Does that person love Jesus, love kids, and love the Seventh-day Adventist Church?

Please pray with us, thanking God that He already knows who our teacher will be, and asking His Spirit to impress that person to contact us at the right time.
