I write to encourage other retired pastors to consider serving as short-term volunteer missionaries. My wife and I returned recently from a wonderful two weeks in Taiwan. We served at Concordia Middle School and Concordia English Language Academy in Chiayi. We were very impressed with the dedicated staff there. Only five or six percent of the Taiwan population claims to be Christian. The need for the Gospel of Jesus is great there and elsewhere! I urge retired pastors to contact LCMS World Mission and learn where and how they can be of service.
