Unfamiliar Surroundings

Tomorrow morning I will be boarding a flight with my thirteen year old son, along with two other dads and their sons. We are going on a mission trip to Laos and Thailand. We have been preparing over the last several months for this adventure. I’m curious? Have you ever embarked on a mission trip or another type of global travel that took you to very unfamiliar surroundings? What do you remember most from that experience? What was one thing you learned that you haven’t forgotten? Would love to hear your story. Better yet, would love to sit down with you when we return and hear your story. By then, hope to have a few of my own!

What we will be doing:

  1. The first part of the trip, in Thailand, we will be twelve helping hands and feet during an intensive youth discipleship camp.
  2. The middle part of the trip, we will be trekking into mountain villages in northern Laos , led by our host missionary and his son, sharing God’s love and His message of hope!
  3. The last part of the trip, we will help out at the English Teaching school they operate. We will be there to help build relationships with the students.

Most importantly, we will be WORSHIPPING. I’ve read that missions exists because worship doesn’t…that worship is the fuel and goal of missions.

Psalm 97:1 says “The Lord reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad!”

So our goal for this trip is simple: to worship God as we let His love work through us into the lives of others, our friends in Laos.
