You had me at PIE!!!

We recently started hosting Pie and Movie nights where we watch a short film entitled The Road Home. This is an amazing tool as it depicts Pico (the son of an Indian diplomat who spent his childhood in England and is then placed in a boarding school in India) as he struggles to make since of his unsorted identity. He runs away from the boarding school and hops in a cab to head back to England. Through his encounters with a funny Indian cab driver and a french woman who wishes to be Indian, Pico tries to make since of his Indian looks and British "insides." 

We follow up the 20 minute film with a discussion on TCKs and what it looks like to grow up somewhere other than your parent's passport country and one day plan to return to your parents' "home." We talk about culture, culture shock, re-entry, and the excellent advantage TCKs can have. It is really neat to watch people begin to understand half of the students we'll be ministering to in Costa Rica. 

Pray with us that these nights will not only show a deeper glimpse into our ministry, but that the Lord would use them to bring people to partner with His work with TCKs and English-Speaking Costa Ricans.
