Visioning for our 2012 Mission Trip

That’s right, we are already planning and visioning for our 2012 youth mission trip. Last night as we were doing our Bible study and talking about “faith without works is dead” in James 2 and the thought hit me.

When people go on Mexico mission trips, they pack clothes to wear while on the trip and then leave all of the clothes there at the end of the trip, with the exception of what they wear home.

Why wouldn’t we do the same thing while working with the homeless population on our own Country. Every year for the past 4, we have worked with inner city homeless in Atlanta, Macon, and now Brunswick Ga. We always meet people who have nothing, just like many that we work with in other Countries. Why not pack our bags with clothes to wear and give them all away the day we leave to people who really need them?

I asked the youth and leaders last night how many would be interested if we were to promote the trip this way for 2012 and several raised their hands while some were very honest that it would be hard to do. We are praying and planning.
