As this secular magazine reports, the government is tightening the grip on its citizens. As our Asian friends have reported to us, underground churches and schools are most hard hit by this.
Our own work at CEFF has been affected by this increased persecution, and our current fundraising campaign is a result of the government’s recent actions.
The Backdrop – The Long-Term Plan – A Full Curriculum
We are supporting and advising educational leaders in the development of a full Kindergarten – 12th grade curriculum created by Asian Christian educators for Asian Christian educators with the support of generous partners like you.
This endeavor isn’t just about creating a program, it’s about empowering God’s people as they work to run their schools effectively and independently. In short, we plan to EQUIP them to Establish a Quality, Unified, Indigenous, Path forward. We plan to support and empower our brothers and sisters so they can:
ESTABLISH: As these Christians are supported in establishing this solid Biblical curriculum from the ground up. they are empowered to create and realize their own vision for educating the coming generations.
a QUALITY: As these educators are supported in crafting and defining a quality curriculum, they are empowered to more effectively assess and refine curriculum by those standards of quality.
UNIFIED: As they are supported in assembling a unified curriculum, they are empowered to become a unified body of educators, building upon one another’s skills and talents.
INDIGENOUS: As they are supported in creating their own contextualized curriculum, they are empowered to cultivate each other through their own teacher training programs.
PATH FORWARD: As our brethren are supported in taking this path forward in curriculum development, they are empowered to continue on into the future using a self-sustaining model.

We had been meeting periodically on a secure line to establish the foundational scope and sequence. However, because of increased persecution of Christians, our Asian board members are experiencing very difficult circumstances because of their positions in their churches. In this situation, communicating regularly as a full board has become extremely difficult. However, a closed door can open our eyes to a better way…
