I have traveled with the First United Methodist Youth mission team for five different trips over my years in Junior High and High School.
1. Houma, LA
2. Nashville, TN
4. Daytona, FL
5. New Orleans, LA
All have been such great experiences. The type of work on each trip was different. The people we interacted with were so special. The number of memories made were endless. The hours in the van were many. These are the times I will always remember and cherish. It is kind of hard to explain, but you learn so much about yourself, others, and our creator… It is always an incredible experience. If you have never traveled and done mission work I highly encourage it! It is honestly life changing.
This week I will be praying and thinking about my mission team as they travel back to Daytona, FL. They felt lead to go back there and I pray for whom and what they come in contact with this week. I am incredibly jealous. I pray that they do great things, make their church home proud, and survive the 18 hour drive.
To my sister… I can’t believe this is your first mission trip without me. I know it is going to be a great week for you!! I can’t wait to hear all about it! Be good, laugh lots, and let God’s light shine though you. Also, don’t share the woats… Lol:)
I make it a point to remember everyday that we as Christians are constantly living in the mission field. Whether you go half way around the world or 5 minutes down the road… We are always in the mission field. I hope you take advantage of that and learn to be thankful for it. I am thankful for the mission field and the impact my home church is going to make all the way in Florida! Have a great week guys!
