Hey church,

I believe that every follower of Jesus must experience a short term mission trip at least once in their lifetime.  Why? Well, here are MY top ten reasons:

#10 Make new lasting relationships with others with whom you serve

#9 Learn to deeply respect others from different cultures than yours

#8 Overcome your fear of…

#7 Obtain God’s loving heart for the world

#6 See God working and Jesus exalted somewhere other than your small world

#5 Learn what is actually important to God (and what isn’t)

#4 Understand once and for all God’s call to “go unto all the world” (Matt 28)

#3 Be used by God in a way that you never dreamt possible

#2 Trust God on an entirely new level

#1 Watch your life change right before your eyes!
