In 2006 Kim and I decided to move our family 2,000 miles away from our family. A year after we moved, we decided to go on our first mission trip. Since then I’ve been on 2 other trips to the Dominican Republic, and Queretaro, Mexico, and as you can guess by the title, this summer Kim and I will be going to Venezuela.
We’re both very excited about this because we will both get to serve together abroad once again. The last time we went on a trip together it brought us so much closer, not only as a couple, but to our Heavenly Father and we really got to know how amazing God works even across cultural boundaries. We also realized gifts we never even had! I think when you are put out of your “comfort zone,” with nothing to fall back on except Him, you really learn about yourself and exactly how God works through you.
I sure wish I would have written about my experience back in ’07 and ’08. Good news is, I was able to capture the Mexico Trip and I will definitely be writing about this one.
Again, we will be going to Venezuela which is a first for both of us and for Kim and I, this decision did not come lightly. We have a ton of money to raise and we have to make sure everything is planned out perfectly (babysitters for a week!). Believe me we will definitely be asking y’all for support, but I’ll keep that for another post 🙂
Anybody else thinking about going on a vacation with a purpose this summer?
