Stoicism is not evangelical religion. You're not obligated to save anyone — there's no risk of hell if a soul remains in ignorance of the teachings of Epictetus or Marcus Aurelius.
But now that you've learned and studied a better path, you can be of service to others. You can share your wisdom or insight with a friend or stranger — remembering that behavior is always better example than a lecture.
Everyone deserves to benefit from "philosophy's principles" as Seneca put it. If you see someone who is in need of help, or has asked for guidance, provide it. You owe them that much.
