Is This Trip For Me?
One of the first questions that everyone asks when considering a mission trip is, “Should I go?” The hardest part of the entire mission adventure can be taking that first step and making the decision to go. Inevitably doubts will arise and possible reasons for not going will appear. Common concerns can include vacation time conflicts, uncertainties about leaving family members behind, not being able to teach or having done ministry before, not knowing what to expect or how you can be used on the trip, not having ever traveled outside of the country, not having financial support and much more.
Take heart! These are all normal and very valid concerns. Just remember that what seems impossible with man is possible with God! If you are meant to take part in this mission trip, nothing you do or don’t do will stop you from going. God’s strength is perfected in our weakness. God does not ask that we are able, just available. He will open every door and take care of your every need. As you begin stepping out in faith, having the desire and passion to see the world come to Christ, the Holy Spirit will confirm that this is for you.
