Why Should I Say ‘Yes’

So you’ve been contemplating and praying about whether or not you should apply for one of our summer mission trips. Let’s explore another reason to say “yes” to applying for a trip: brokenness.

The human relationship with brokenness goes all the way back to the beginning. When Adam and Eve sinned in Genesis, they broke their relationship with God, with themselves, with each other, and with the rest of creation. Because of this, each one of us is broken.

You probably experience brokenness in your everyday life. Although you may not be affected by material poverty (lack of resources such as food or healthcare), you know what it’s like to live in spiritual poverty (greed, fear, resentment).

In missions, we seek restoration for the problems of our world that stem from sin and broken relationships. God wants us to work against brokenness by proclaiming in word and deed the message of the Gospel and sharing His love with all you encounter.

Jesus tells the disciples, “But you shall receive the power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). God’s plan is to bring restoration to our hurting world, and His strategy is to use you to do it!
