I believe that mission trips are one of the most powerful ways for you to come face-to-face with the raw emotion of life. I went on my first oversees mission trip to Honduras when I was 16 years old. Since then I have been to The Philippines, The Dominican Republic and Africa on mission trips. Each time, I was moved. Each time, I came home different.
This week Pete is joining a team from Compassion in the country of India. I know that they’ll see and hear things that will bring them to tears. They’ll also discover joy in the simplest of smiles. They’ll miss some comforts and they’ll face their own inconsistencies. They’ll come home different. They’ll see through different eyes.
I encourage you to take some time this week to pray for Pete and the rest of the Compassion Team. And be sure to follow their journey HERE.
Have you been on a mission trip? If so, where and how did it change you?
