Preparing For The Journey

In the coming days I will be traveling with a mission team out of the country to continue a relationship with a partner church. I’ve had the opportunity to travel internationally many times however this is my first international missions experience, so I’m a mixture of emotions.

For several years now I have done same ritual before beginning a mission’s experience:

  • I begin journaling a few days ahead,
  • I give possessions away,
  • I ask specific people to pray for us,
  • I pray for each team member,

Needless to say this ritual has become something I begin to do without prompting now. My hope is that each missions experience will change me and I will return with new eyes to see the world and how God is at work around me.

I ask for your prayers as we journey together in the coming days as well as those we will come in contact with.
