We’re still hearing great stories about all the changed lives during this summerâ€™s mission trips… incredible stories of people in need receiving real help â€“ along with stories about youth growing closer to God and feeling a new and renewed strength in their personal faith. These stories are a great reason to invite you and your group to experience a Group Mission Trip next summer.
Donâ€™t take my word on this.Â Hereâ€™s a testimony from a veteran youth leader about how a mission trip has changed her ministry and her students:
Â This summerâ€™s trip was especially amazing for our studentsâ€¦and for me.Â In my 10 years of ministry, I have never seen a group more bonded and committed to one another.Â The way in which they were encouraged to grow together is truly a blessing and I am indebted to the Group Mission Trips team.Â Our post-trip summer has been phenomenalâ€”student leadership, the addition of summer youth group (planned and lead by upperclassmen), strong relationships, and excited adult leaders.Â Thank you for helping us become a stronger youth group, for helping my students live out their faith with passion and for helping me reconnect to my calling.Â Your trips make such an incredible difference in the lives of students and leaders.Â Thank you, thank you!
