Voluntary Missionary Service
Missionary / Missionary Leader (Former Employee) – Raleigh, NC – October 3, 2015
A typical day of worked consisted of several hours of early morning study, of different religious books as well as an hour of study of the Spanish language to be able to communicate proficiently.
We then left after a brief meal to try using different approaches and methods to invite people to hear the message that we shared.
- How to be independent & Work proactively
- Responsible for my work
- To organize and manage different appointments
- To run activities to help those in the community
- To keep accurate and presentable records of all dealings and associations
We were a group of 300 people who were managed by several leaders and broken down into about teams of 12, as i was given charge of about 30, it was important that i worked with those beside and under me to ensure that we worked together to produce the desired results
The hardest part of the Job was helping others to keep motivated in the task. Essentially it comes down to personal choice and desire, if you are passionate about the work, then it is alot easier to be motivated in spite of difficulties that may be faced.
The most fun part of my job was learning Spanish and meeting and learning new things. The missionary service was a fast paced environment which had new things being added and changed everyday, it was exciting working under pressure and continually being placed in different places with varying challenges.
Fun, Diverse, Meeting new people, Learned a new language.
