Current Service Opportunity: Relationship Builder through English as a Foreign Language
They pass you on the street, thumbs rapidly texting, iPods constantly humming with music. High school students here travel in small groups, never wanting to be the one who sticks out. And that isn’t so different from the United States. But looking up, you see a double-decker bus rolling past. The smell of incense is pervasive. Two things are clear: you aren’t in Kansas anymore, and God has opened a door for you here. Show them Christ as you share their life, their world.

God knows us and what we need. He sent his Son, Jesus, to earth, so that we may have life, and have it to the full. Through faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection, our relationship with God is restored and we have life. LCMS World Mission’s GEO and short-term missionary programs focus on building relationships and sharing the Gospel with people through those relationships, as well as connecting locals to career missionaries and national churches to continue building relationships. The people touched by GEO and short-term missionaries need the same thing we all do: true life in Christ. By serving for 1-2 years or even two weeks, you can help our missionaries and national churches in their efforts to introduce people to a true life in Christ.
