Two years ago, Chicago corporate lawyer Christine Bodewes left a career of litigating securities lawsuits for top companies to volunteer with the Maryknoll Mission Association of the Faithful.

Now she works with people like slum dwellers in Nairobi, Kenya who go to court to fight evictions and defend their right to own their land.

Feeling a vocation but not sure how to act on it, she found MMAF and discovered "all skills are transferrable." She told Maryknoll magazine, "If you have this vocation for foreign mission, you can parlay anything."
