Mission Bound

childrenIn August 2008, a group of young Christians led by Michael and Janet Morrison were planning to go to the Philippines for a short-term mission trip. Even a short mission trip can be a life-changing experience. We interviewed four of the participants as they were preparing for their evangelistic odyssey, and we had a follow-up interview when they returned.

Little Stars: A Story of Faith, Love and Vision from Thailand

I first met Chugait Garmolgomut in the early ’80s, when I was International Student Coordinator for Ambassador College in Pasadena, California. Chugait was tall for a Thai, but was soft spoken, as is typical of Thai people. He told me he had been brought up in Chonburi, near Bangkok, but after his mother had married an American serviceman he came to live in the USA. When I met him, he was living with his step-grandparents in Arizona. He had been brought up in Buddhism, but after coming to understand Christianity he had converted.

Watching God Work in the Philippines

“We aren’t coming for a vacation—we are coming to serve. We don’t want to be a burden—we want to do something that helps,” we explained to the Philippines office personnel. So they put us to work, and we were able to see God at work in a dozen ways, in a dozen places. Join us for the highlights of our two-week “mission immersion” trip in the Philippines.

Is a Short-Term Mission Worth It?

Traditionally, a missionary’s work required tremendous commitment—many years or even a lifetime away from home, living in remote areas in primitive conditions, battling disease, paganism and hostility—and maybe even a martyr’s death—with no guarantee of results.

To swoop in on a jet for a few days of hard work and fun, working with friendly people in simple but safe surroundings—is that really a mission?

It can be. Or it can be a waste of time and of money that could be better used in other ways. The keys to success are preparation, mutual respect and ongoing commitment.

Crossing Borders - Camp With a Mission

OK, so you’ve been there, done that and got a drawer full of camp T-shirts. Then perhaps you are ready to expand your Christian growth in a new and challenging way. How about stepping into a foreign culture with the gospel of Jesus Christ?

As part of our Generations Ministry programs, we have Crossing Borders—an exciting adventure. While maintaining the central focus on growing in Jesus, this camp will also include education and training in cross-cultural mission, along with some hands-on experience in Mexico.
