|Youth Mission Team from one of our supporting churches!|
I remember my first foreign mission trip in high school... I went to Jamaica. Yeah, our Youth Pastor really knew how to sell missions! I vividly remember coming home from that trip thinking, "I could do this for the rest of my life!" And I'm pretty sure that was also when I began dreaming of adopting a brown baby someday. There are all kinds of debates about the value of short-term missions (check out these three links), but I am living proof that there is one more full-time missionary on the field because I went on a trip in high school. We can debate all day long.
But if you or someone you love is going on a short-term mission trip this summer- please read this post: 6 Ways to Make your Summer Mission Trip Incredibly Amazing. And then do those things!
Is your church sending a team out this summer? Where are they going? What are your thoughts on short-term missions?
