My friend and I are headed to El Salvador in January. And I think I speak for both of us when I say we’re nervous-in-a-good-way and excited.
The only other international mission trip I have been on was to Brazil when I was 15. There my heart caught the spark of sharing the love of God and message of Jesus with all I come in contact with, overseas or in my neighborhood.
Since then I’ve been living life, cultivating relationships, sharing Jesus’ love for strangers who were hurting, financially supporting missionary friends and organizations I love, and working like every other human being.
A friend mentioned she was thinking of going on this particular trip, and later that night I told God, I think I want to go with her. What do You think?
