Let’s Start Talking
Since 1980, the LET’S START TALKING MINISTRY has been leading Americans overseas into non-English speaking countries and providing them with an effective method for sharing their faith. We work directly with missionaries who have invited us to partner with them. By offering free English practice in their cities, we are not only able to talk with people about Jesus, but are able to help bring new people into the local churches.
With LST, you have the opportunity to travel to a foreign country and read the Gospel of Jesus with non-believers in a one-on-one, conversational setting — with people who might otherwise never step foot inside a church building. These people come to improve their English language skills but leave changed by the story of Jesus and by the example of love in your life. If you like people, love the Lord, and can speak English, you can do LST!
LST will help you build your own team of friends or family, usually 3–5 people. Your team will train together using LST’s Training Series to prepare for sharing your faith, adapting to a new culture, and working well together.
LST has invitations from all over the world and will match your team with a site that is a good fit. You can go for 2–6 weeks any time of the year, and we arrange your transportation and housing as well as any necessary visas. Each year LST has many more invitations from mission sites then we have teams, so if you’re thinking about going, now is a great time!
