Question about Guidance for missionaries:
"Can I use my profession and technical skills as a missionary?"
First, learn about the area where you want to go: the needs and strengths of the country and the region, work permits for foreigners, and the work environment of your profession. Is your experience useful there (it may not be!) How is your profession or skill carried out there. What kinds of office politics and bureaucratic red tape drive projects?
I recommend you contact Global Intent to learn more. They are a terrific outfit with experience counseling and placing people in many parts of the world.
