MK's & TCK's (Missionary Kids & Third Culture Kids)

Below is a web address for a file compiled for MKs (missionary kids) and TCKs (third culture kids). However, I'm so impressed with the resources gathered here that I'm sending it to you. You may know someone (even your own kid? the visiting missionary's kid? yourself?) who may benefit from one or more of these resources. Notice that there are three sections. The last section might apply to your neighbor kid or one in your Sunday School class. Enjoy, Bev
