John Flanagan: I agree with the condition of having your college bound kids participate in a Christian missionary trip, however, I might open it up to other options like volunteering locally for a specified time at a soup kitchen, a Gospel Rescue Mission, a home for unwed mothers, even a secular food pantry, a hospice, a nursing home, or a literacy volunteer organization. Often we think that a mission field must be in Africa or another foreign place, and no doubt some people are called to go to these areas, but I think the overlooked mission field may sometimes be just down the road, and the need exists for a volunteer to simply offer a warm meal, a smile, an encouraging word. In doing so, one is doing what Jesus preached, and for the young especially, it is a lesson in unselfishness and love.
