When you take a short term missions trip the goal is to come along side local churches in different nations to resource, strengthen, and help in whatever way you have ability to help.
What usually happens however is as much as you want to make a difference, the greatest difference made is in you.
You are inspired, gain perspective and most importantly build some life changing relationships.
We did what we came to do. Helped orphans, street kids, several local churches and trained pastors and leaders.
God did what he sent us to do. Used us to make a difference in the lives of many while awakening each of us to higher heights and deeper depths spiritually.
