Experiencing International Missions can be scary. It requires a little bravery and boldness. It’s one thing to step outside your comfort zone within the confines of the United States. But when your comfort zone is an entire country away… you can feel a little lost.
Supporting someone on a Mission trip requires faith and selflessness. The willingness to partner and support someone else’s experience in hopes of catching a glimpse of God’s work in return.
Whether you GO or SEND, both roles are critical to what God is doing.
The Monterrey Mission team is walking out some of this fear, bravery and boldness as they prepare for their trip in June. When asked to look ahead at what they hope to experience in Monterrey, here is what they shared:
When you land in the states on June 13th, what would have to happen in Mexico to make you say, “That was worth it!”?
Seeing what a difference just a few people can make in the lives of the kids.
The feeling that I did Gods will and that he used my family and me for His good.
That I would know that I made a difference in the life of a child and that it was in Gods name not mine.
For me to watch my daughter and the orphans there bless each other in such radically different AND similar ways that only God can understand.
Knowing for me that even if i don’t feel anything in Mexico or when I get back that I know the seeds I planted God will send others to water them. I think I’ve been able to see that over the past year already.
It’s hard not to get excited about what God will do in the hearts and minds of the adults, students & kids going to Monterrey. Would you join our team?
