Hello Jack, I am a retired ...

Steve asked:

Hello Jack, I am a retired airline pilot and 63. I see a lot of young people today that are interested in making a difference in the world. I have a little experience in the middle east and central Asia. Most importantly, I am a Christian and want to give my time and energy to Jesus Christ. My question is; how can I help these young men and women? I would prefer "hands on" in the field, possibly as a guide/councilor in central Asia or mid east. I'm looking for ideas.

Yours in Christ,


Jack Answered:

Steve, my recommendation would be that you get in contact with two mission organizations that work in this part of the world:  Pioneers (contact them here) and Frontiers (contact them here).  They would be able to tell you how someone with your background and experience could be of help in this context.

As the Lord has placed this burden on your heart, we can trust that He will guide you to His place of service.

In His Fellowship,
