I am the type of person that before any event I like to be fully fully prepared for anything that could happen. So naturally, throughout the day today my mind seemed to wander back to the same question – are we ready for mission trip?
Weimar Academy has the privilege to embark on four different mission trips this year. We will be going to Arizona, Belize, Bolivia, and Curaçao. One of the things that I love about Weimar Academy is that every student has the opportunity to go on mission trip. Throughout this school year, students have been working with staff and representatives at each respective location preparing talks, programs, meal plans, and other details. We have not left on these trips yet, but we have already been able to see God work in amazing ways to bring details together and solve problems that we would not have been able to solve on our own.
Even though God has done so much for us already, it is so easy for our minds to slip back to the notion that somehow WE are the ones that need to worry about each detail. It can be so easy to forget how God has led in the past. But we can not go on a mission trip saying we are going to share Christ’s love with the work until we have hidden ourselves behind the cross. It is because of the sacrifice that Jesus made for each and every one of us that we are able to go and heal the world.
As we are going our separate ways today, I ask that you keep us in your prayers. Updates will be posted on this blog and on our social media accounts if you want to stay up to date with us. We are excited to share how we see God work on each of these trips, and we are ready to be God’s hands and feet.
