Students Mission Trip Overview
Missions and the Wizard of Oz
In the words of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, “we aren’t in Kansas anymore Toto”! Although there won't be any flying monkey's, this definitely won’t feel like home. You will discover a whole other world and you will discover the answers to many questions.
Your mission trip is about people not projects. You will definitely do some real work, but you will remember the real relationships. Whether it’s the kids you get to know, the stories you hear from being in the community or just discoveries you make on your own, life is about relationships and understanding others. You will make an impact and you will feel an impact long after your trip is finished.
We encourage you to find ways to engage in missions even after you get home. That's what we mean by "long-term impact". We hope and pray you will stay in contact with the ministry and people you served. Add them to your facebook, call or write them often. During the year host fundraisers to help them with special projects. Start or support similar ministries in your own hometown.
Most of all, we hope you will return to serve again. Remember, the Good Samaritan said to the Innkeeper, "and when I return, I will pay you in full". He didn't just leave the beaten stranger alone. He provided for his needs and came back to check on his progress and pay the bill.
