What’s New?

As of June 2019, Stephen and Cristina Meier and their children (Jared, Luke, Grace & Seth) are back on U.S. soil after having lived in mainland China for two years.  For the past two years, Stephen was the headmaster at an international “faith-based” school. This has given him a total of eight years experience in the superintendent position of a private school.  Cristina started off teaching high school Spanish, but had to step down from that position in the middle of her second year of teaching. She finished the school year simply being a “mom” to her four children.  Jared completed the sixth grade two months shy of his twelfth birthday.  It was his first experience being a part of a middle school program.  Luke finished fourth grade, Grace finished second grade and Seth finished kindergarten.

When we finished the 2018-2019 school year, we also finished two years of living in China.  We packed up all our bags and returned to the U.S. for the summer. After visiting friends and relatives, we will pack our bags again to move to the unfamiliar land of Turkey.  Although we do not know very much about Turkey, we are excited about what we will learn there in the next two years.

  1. Hi to everyone from the snow capital of the USA.
    70 t0 80 inches of snow so far. We continue to dig out. SVCA is back in session. Most of the public schools are still stranded at home. The back roads are exciting. Not much room to run or bike. One lane in alot of areas. We are all doing well. John is still awainting his double-lung transplant. Keep praying. James still working at the U.S. Congress. Erin waiting to start some type of nursing school in April. God Bless You All! Juntos Marchamos, Gloria Dios! Pastor Eric


    1. Yeah, we’ve been hearing about all the snow on T.V. It makes me glad I live in the “land of eternal spring.” Stay warm up there!
