Why send a mission team when I can send a cheque? This is a question often asked. More money could be sent if airfare, food, accommodations, passports, etc did not have to be paid for. This is true! However, a cheque can not change lives like a mission trip can.
Each person who goes on a mission trip, no matter where they go or which ministry they go with, are changed. When we are willing to let God change us, we change. Our goal is to ruin every team member for the "typical" christian life. Coming on a mission trip will change you and draw you closer to God.
The teams open many doors into the local people's lives. Through the teams, we get to know more people, we are able to help more people and we are able to build more relationships. When relationships are being built, God's love and God's word is shared.
The local people often ask us why the teams have sacraficed their vacation time, time from their famlies, and money to pay to come to work hard in the tropic heat to help them? The doors fly open and we are able to evangelize! Team are priceless!
