The Mission Trip
So, today, I must help Tyler pack for his mission trip. It is the second time he is going on one and I am proud of him and all the kids going. They have to raise money to go and serve others, and they did it, over $17,000.00. Awesome. This year they head off to Indianapolis to the inner city to help those in need. They do whatever is asked of them, no chore to small or too big. I love it. God has not called me to go on a missions trip, but I totally appreciate those that are going.
So can we lift up these kids in prayer? Ask for safety and God's hand in it all? Please also pray for Kevin O'Drisscol, he was supposed to go, but cannot due to the fact he has mono AND strep throat. Kevin gave his life to Christ at Velocity and really wanted to be on this mission trip.
Pray for our leaders that are going. Speaking as a leader of these kids, they are great, but a big group and the leaders need to keep them in check and on task, so lift them up too.
Have you ever been on a missions trip? Would you go again? Did you love it or not so much? Share the love.
God bless you and yours.
