Episode 23: Third-Culture Kid Perspective
February 19, 2021
Michaela Federwitz grew up in West Africa as a missionary kid with Lutheran Bible Translators, offering her a unique “third-culture kid” perspective. She will soon return to West Africa to serve, caring for the children of LBT-Canada’s missionaries Rev. Mike and Kara Kuhn.
“The more effort you put into actually caring and getting to know that TCK, the more open they’ll be with you and the more they’ll feel comfortable.”

Michaela Federwitz’ comments are wise beyond her years, which may be one of the benefits she has received by being a TCK.

Michela, this was such a informative talk and missionary kids have a special place in my heart especially when I see prayer request from their parents.. I am just curious as I listen to, how you view me as an African American woman. There’s some envy i have because white people get to be in Africa with the people I wish I knew. Sometimes white seem people love people who live in Africa and they don’t have the same love for us in the US. I am just expressing my feelings. I am 63 now, with these thoughts. It’s not personal but I wish I would have had your experience. I appreciate you and life you are living. I may be American in name, but we African Americans are not American. I just hope you and other missionaries love us, and have compassion. I may have been from Ghana or Congo on and on…. who knows but God. That was taken from me along with my language. I just wanted you to know that. You are young and I feel you may be able to feel my words. My prayers will be with you even more than ever, now that I have heard your voice. thank you sharing and please continue to speak your mind. Bless you in your endeavors, whereever God takes you.
