I’m very thankful to have been a part of the team this year!
Colossians 3:14 says, “put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.” One of the best aspects of traveling on mission journeys is the unity that we so often experience. When a group of Christians, working with the goal of honoring Christ, comes together for the Lord’s purpose, pulling in the same direction, there’s a great unity to be found in that. The Lord used the team’s various strengths in a diversity of ways (through music, words of encouragement, prayers, teaching, activities, and preaching), and He multiplied the message. The team was made up of people of different ages, backgrounds, experiences, languages and cultures, and that made it such a beautiful picture of our Lord fulfilling His mission through His people.
In a world where there is so much division, being part of a united team working for the Lord’s purpose is a wonderful blessing.
