Missions Article: I misunderstood missions

 —  May 29, 2012 — Leave a comment

Our friends at youthministry.com posted a good article about mission the other day.  It’s a good read with good thoughts about missions and how easy it is to forget the reasons we serve.

I misunderstood missions

It’s very easy to forget why we go on mission trips – especially for me.  I get caught up in all the “work” of organizing trips.  The details.  The tasks.  The stuff.  All of that is necessary to make a trip happen.  But obviously it is not why we go.  We go because there is need.  We go because God has called us to.  We go because we know that we will encounter Jesus there.
