At the end of February, a team from our home church Hope Chapel Maui came to YWAM Mazatlan to build a home with our Homes of Hope ministry. While they were here I kept thinking about the impact that a team from a individual's home church has and this is what I wanted to share with you.
1. It's blessing to the missionaries on the field
2. The impact that it has on the people who go
Watch the video above and you will see for yourself that people can be impacted deeply by going on a mission trip. For some it may just be experiencing a new country for the first time or it may be the extreme poverty that they encounter and for others it may be the opportunity to serve in such a practical way. Whatever the reason is for each individual, it all comes back to one thing, Jesus. So many people leave a mission trip talking about how it changed their life or how they will never be the same. God not only uses us to love on those in need, but He moves in our hearts in a powerful way as well. And that's exactly what God does when we say yes to Him.
