Lesson 2. It’s Possible Today!
Why the continued interest in mission trips? Do they do any good? Are they worth the time, energy, and money?
In this lesson, we’ll discuss all of these questions and more, and we’ll also explore the idea of career or long-term missionary work. The benefits stretch beyond the individual or group participating, and even beyond the communities they go to serve.
Knowing what you know now about short-term and long-term mission work, you can do some soul-searching and, with God’s help, answer the “why” question for yourself. Short-term opportunities give you the chance to experience the joy of serving and may inspire you to commit your life to long-term mission work.
In the next lesson, we’ll address the two questions you must be able to answer if you decide to serve in the mission field and how those questions relate to the Great Commission.
