IN OWN WORDS:
"When most people think of missionaries, they think of someone going to preach at people to convert them to the faith. Lay Mission-Helpers do a different sort of mission work. I love the idea of witnessing to my faith simply with my presence. I know that I will learn more from the students I will beteaching than I will ever be able teach them. This is an amazing opportunity to go outside of my comfort zone to serve others."
