Summer will be here before you know it, and now is the time to explore going on a short-term missions trip!
If you have never actually participated in a short-term mission trip, you may not be aware of the reasons why you should go...
Make new friends, be challenged to defend your faith, see new believers come to faith, develop a taste for full-time ministry, visit places you might not otherwise travel to, enrich your prayers and giving upon returning home...
...short-term missions offer an opportunity to use gifts and abilities in ways that are much more kingdom-oriented than our common daily work....and offer a refreshing opportunity to focus on what we profess to believe but can quickly overlook in the busy-ness of our everyday activities: the call to love neighbors as ourselves...**
