Why go on a mission trip!
We go on mission trips for many reasons – to learn, to discover, to share, and to receive. But most importantly, we go to put Jesus on display. That’s why every one of us who follow Christ should be eager and willing to go and share our testimonies with the world.
You are light; your presence brings out the God – colors in the world. All of us know that God is not a secret to be kept. We must go public about Him, as public as a city on a hill.
God makes us light- bearers! That means we cannot hide ourselves under a bucket! I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand – shine!
Keep open the house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in Heaven.
Mission trips are both transformative and life changing.
I believe God calls us to work with the poor for several reasons. First, it opens our eyes to what matters most in this life. In affluent societies, it is easy for us to become comfortable and lose sight of what’s important. When you are stripped of everything but the bare essentials, you begin to see the value of faith, hope and love.
Secondly, exposure to extreme poverty teaches us to lean on Jesus every moment of every day. When you are sick and there is no doctor, when you are hungry and there is no food, when you are cold and there is no blanket; where do you turn? In America we turn to Walmart. In many third world countries (if you are a Christian) you turn to God. Regardless of whether we know it or not, we are all in desperate need of Christ. Whether you are ‘rich, and wealthy, and in need of nothing’ (Revelation 2:17a), or you are ‘miserable, poor, blind, and naked…’ (Revelation 2:17b), no matter your physical situation in this life, we are all EQUALLY in need of a Savior…
