As part of my desire to connect (or “kesher” in Hebrew) others to international missions, I want to use every avenue available to network, encourage and share tips or insights. If you are reading this blog it means that you have a passion for global outreach or have a need in the area of short-term mission trips.
Please feel free to respond to any of my blog posts. You have valuable information that can be shared with someone else! The Bible tells us “as iron sharpens iron, so can people improve each other”. Proverbs 27:17 NCV You have a great skill in the area of missions. Your experience, whether long-term or short-term, can benefit those whom God is calling to step out and take the lead in continuing to reach the nations with the message of salvation.
I also hope to use this opportunity as a jumping off platform in creating good mission trip devotions that can be used for pre-trip, on-trip and post-trip equipping of leaders and team members. I was blessed to compose several devotionals, which was used in the team journals for my church’s mission department. Reports have come back concerning the power of the teachings that the Lord chose to write through me. God’s word will not come back to Him vacant. It will accomplish what He desired and achieve the purpose for which He commissioned. (Isaiah 55:11)
