Maintaining multiple blogs is rewarding, if challenging.Hence, my apollogy about posting my last mission trip article to You've Been Reviewed. Mission Trip Reflections is my musing about the trip and how it impacted my life. God certainly moved me beyond my comfort zone! The experience in Hungry Horse, Montana, touched me deeply in many ways.
I believe in local, national and international missions. Sure, the experiences give you a chance to help someone else. However; mission trips can remind yourself of who you are. They can help you reconnect with God on many levels. The reconnection and spiritual boost can be a profound unexpected experience.
If you take part in a mission trip, I would implore you to expect to see God. He is always at work but we don't always see His hands. Christian voluntourism can change that, if you let it. Don't miss the opportunity.
