Have you ever thought of serving a mission for the LDS Church? Are you unable to because of age, health, family concerns, job - oh just about anything? Well the Church is now trying a different approach to serving missions. You can now go on a Service Mission and stay in the comfort of your own home, even stay in your jammies with big pink fluffy slippers on if you wish.

The other day I spoke with Jason R. Bowden from the Family and Church History Department, he is the Mission Coordinator, and they are looking for you? They need about 600 to 1,000 worthy souls to serve from there own homes. They are gearing up for the all the neat changes taking place on "new FamilySearch". You can be anywhere in the world and serve.

Part-Time Church Service Missionaries Needed
Family and Church History Department - Worldwide Support Services

Interested in the new FamilySearch?
Church Service Missionaries provide e-mail and phone support for beta testers and new FamilySearch users answering questions on family history products, programs, and services. Missionaries will be beta testers and will receive training on answering questions from other users. Missionaries can offer e-mail and phone support from their own homes!

Availability: Between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.; 4 hour increments, 8-32 hours per week preferred. (I was told you can answer e-mails in the middle of the night, whenever your up and available.)

-Church Service Missionary call to be extended from bishop and stake president
-Home PC minimum; 256MB RAM, Pentium III, Windows XP (Mac Users Welcome)
-Broadband (DSL, Cable) Internet connection

Skills: Good understanding of PCs and troubleshooting skills; strong communication skills; experience in using family history products (IGI, PAF, Temple Ready, FamilySearch, etc.); previous experience as a ward consultant, family history center director or staff member, or as an extraction program director or worker is helpful.

For more information contact: Jason R. Bowden, Family and Church History Department, Missionary Coordinator, Joseph Smith Memorial Building, 3 East, Salt Lake City, UT 84150; 801-240-1036 or bowdenjr@ldschurch.org

For details about opportunities: Go to http://www.lds.org, click on "Other Resources", click on "Church-Service Missionary Opportunities", click on "Full-time" or "Part-time" opportunities, then click "Current Opportunities" to view the current bulletin.

Jason told me about their neat computer database that is available to all the service missionaries. This thing is huge and was created for the missionaries to get answers to all types of questions. You will not be in the dark or lost and alone if you are serving in this capacity. I think this is a fantastic opportunity, I'm rolling it over in my mind if I am ready and "Called to Serve", are You?

Update: If you are a Mac user you are needed also.
