It is common for international scholars to bring their family with them, since they’ll be in the United States for months or years. While a scholar may have many opportunities to connect with friends and colleagues in an academic setting, their spouses may feel very isolated, not knowing the culture and being so far from their extended family. Mom & Baby Playtime is an opportunity for them to connect with other international moms in the same situation. It also provides a “play date” opportunity for the young children as well as an opportunity to learn about Jesus. The group meets weekly at a local church for singing, readings from a children’s Bible, and other activities such as crafts or outings. Volunteer leaders provide tips on navigating parenting in America, offer encouragement, and pray for and with group members. To learn more, please contact us.
