tebs1962 posted a topic in LDS Gospel DiscussionEnglish speaking LDS volunteers desperately needed. Hi. My name is Edward and I live in Ecuador. I have been tasked with teaching English to Church members in Guayaquil Ecuador in the Pathway program, prior to the students attending BYU online. The students ages range from 16 to 30. All of the students are members of the Church. Most have learned some English in schools here in Ecuador. What most lack really is conversational English. They lack pronunciation and communication skills. Most are really very poor and so their access to the internet is via internet cafe's located near their homes. We sincerely hope there might be members of the Church who would be willing to volunteer a couple of hours a week to help some of these wonderful brothers and sisters by conversing with them in English, one on one through Skype, a few hours each week. It is not necessary that you speak Spanish, just good, clear English. Many of these students are return missionaries or are brothers or sisters preparing to serve missions. Some are single or married adults. All are converts to the Church and all are good people, trying to better themselves. Here is your chance to really make a difference in another person's life and to make life long friends along the way. Please, if you can help, contact me and lets get started. Sincerely, Edward [email protected]
I am looking to take my family to volunteer abroad, but I can't seem to find a good service to go through. There seem to be allot of them, and i am surprised at how much it costs to volunteer abroad. I also wonder how legit many of them are. I also wonder if I even need to go through a volunteer service at all. Maybe we could just volunteer at an organization. Does anyone here have a recommendation? We would prefer to go to south America. I served in Peru, and I have take my wife and daughter back there once. We would love to go again and to do some service this time.
My husband and I have been in China since August of 2006. First with the Kennedy Center for Internationals Studies at BYU with the China Teachers Program (CTP) for two years, teaching in Qingdao at Ocean University of China. Upon arriving home we received a call to return to China, this time for 23 months as Humanitarian Volunteers. We arrived back in China in February of 2009. As LDS Charities representatives working with a local charity here, The All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), is a lot of fun. The ACWF has asked that we teach at the China Women's University, which has 4,000 girls and 39 boys. Which is great! Most senior couples when they elect to serve have to pay for their own "M" - we don't because the university provides us with an apartment, maid service to clean every week and change the sheets!, and we receive a wage to teach - which is sufficient for us to live off one income and bank the other! Can't beat that with a stick!! So, we are here in Beijing teaching, serving, NO PROSELYTING, active OR passive - PERIOD!!! But there are those that have a spark in their eyes! And there are those that have dull eyes. Life is absolutely wonderful!!!! Oh, we have 7 grown children, 15 grandchildren. . . . and they all support us and cheer us on!! How can we lose?
