Truscifi Posted January 19, 2011 Share Posted January 19, 2011 Heather's post about her school needing to hire more help got me thinking. Are there similar opportunities for non Christians? Not just education, but service in general? Is there a program for non-Christians who want to serve others? Something akin to missionary work where you go and live and work in a community to help improve said community. Or maybe more like the Peace Corps, but you can go as a family. I had intended to join the Peace Corps straight out of college, but dh proposed, we started planning a life and a family, and you can't take a family with you as a Peace Corps volunteer. I know there are opportunities for people with money to go on a service trip, but the programs I have seen cost thousands of dollars. I know there are local opportunities to volunteer, and I do, but I suppose I feel called to this the same way some Christians do. I'm not opposed to going with a Christian group, but none I have found so far want me because I'm not Christian and won't proselytize. And dh is much farther from the Christian viewpoint than I am, so even if they would take me, I seriously doubt they would take him. Any constructive suggestions?
