Hello! We are Joel and Heidi Hayslip from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Our wonderful boys are Jakob (born 2001) and Silas (born 2007) Hayslip. We served in Burkina Faso, Africa for 12 years and loved it. We have been Stateside for the last few years for Jakob to go through high school, and now that he has graduated and is off to college, we are excited to return to West Africa, this time to Niger (because the national team we raised up in Burkina is doing a great job there and doesn’t need us anymore. Silas will be attending Sahel Academy in Niamey, Niger, a well-known awesome school where the majority of the students are children of missionaries.
We train nationals in Children’s Ministry and Children’s Evangelistic Outreaches. We have a ton of fun, and we also see God do awesome things as we follow His lead. We would love for our nanny/tutor to join us on outreaches helping us play with the kids, do puppet shows, skits, hand out Operation Christmas Child gifts, etc. They are welcome to help whenever they would have the chance.
The principal duty of the “nanny” we are recruiting is not to be a nanny, but more of a Teacher’s Aide/Paraprofessional for our son Silas (no teacher’s accreditation necessary). This would entail assisting Silas in his core classes in Reading, Writing and Math. This person will work closely with Silas’ homeroom teacher and just assist in any way the teacher needs, but mostly helping Silas and maybe 1 or 2 other children in the 5th-grade classroom that need extra help.
