Well this Mormon message has made me want to serve abroad. I think it would be so much fun to go with a friend, travel to a far away land and serve the people for a few months. Now I just need to find a program to do it, and someone to go with, and do it!
For now though I just stick with Freerice.com
Check it out. It is the easiest way to serve AND get some knowledge in- I like it.
