I just realized, this will be my 6th short term mission trip and out of all of them this is the most people with whom I have traveled. It’s pretty amazing seeing God work in the lives of so many individuals all at once using the same atmosphere and environment. I would say this is probably my favorite thing to witness.
Don’t get me wrong, I truly believe the work we will be doing will be a huge deal to the local people in Merida, but when we leave that’s it. No follow up, no “walking” along side them, nothing.
…but the team? These are people with whom we will get to walk alongside and share in the joy of lifes struggles, faith challenges, and victories together.
That’s pretty freakin’ awesome.
