2. Decide the Location
Many missionary organizations will simply assign you to a location, or let you know where there is need if you aren’t sure, but there are still many considerations to make like those outlined below.
Your passion: Where you want to go, where you feel God has called you to, or the kind of people you are passionate about might be deciding factors.
Your place in life: When you are 20 years old, anywhere might work, but if you have kids, especially teenagers, this is an important factor.
Many missionaries have unexpected family issues, like teenagers who are struggling, that force them to leave the field pre-maturely.
Your health: There are places that might not work because of the health of you or your family.
Older missionaries might need to be close to good health care.
Children with special needs may need specialized therapy or health care.
Dust, humid conditions, or other environmental factors like pollution, may need to be considered.
uReach has locations in the US, Baja California (Mexico), Nicaragua (Central America) and Zambia (Africa).
With uReach, you would find yourself in one of these 4 locations.
Baja for example, is a desert, and therefore a dusty environment, which might not be suited to your health if you have asthma.
