Missions = Compassion

Here’s a great article from my follow blogger Toby Rowe.

Missions = Compassion

As you prepare your group for your summer mission trip experience this year, these are great words.  Remember that a mission trip experience is all encompassing.  It’s not just about your group.  It’s not just about those you’re serving.  It’s not just about the work or service you are doing.  It’s not just about fun times you’ll have together.  It’s not about any one of those things.  It’s about all of them!

But don’t forget that you are serving real people.  With real needs.  They are not just a project.  They are people who God loves and you have the opportunity to serve them.

God bless you and your group on your mission trip this summer.
