I've heard that there is incredible opportunity for missions in many countries. A missionary explained how he had no knowledge of Chinese, but that the demand for English teachers in China was so high that the government flew him over, gave him a job, and a free apartment with full-paid utilities. Also, this man wasn't an English teacher, as we would consider one, but just a native English speaker. I think he had to take some courses, but from the way he spoke about it, they couldn't have been very extensive. I'm just thinking: This may be the opportunity to get into the Islamic countries! I know North Africa, Mauritania, any Islamic Republic make public witnessing illegal and will not allow Christian missionaries to come in. Does anyone have any information on this? Opportunities for English teaching and long-term missions? I've searched on the web some, but can't seem to find any. What about Baptist colleges? That could be a good place to contact? I know Marantha students, if I recall, where using their English degrees for missions. NOTE : I know you guys know my maturity level. Please, don't think I'm gonna grab a 1 year certificate and go to some foreign country without the authority/approval of numerous godly men whom God has placed in my life and the local church, God's authoritative structure. I need to mature, and much more.
