UPDATE: I am working (slowly) on a mission trip to Africa. They have a LOT of needs that we could help with. Hopefully this Adventure will take place in 2017 (maybe sooner if you all want to step in and help with planning). I could take the easy way out and let us ride the "coat-tails" of another organization, but NAAAA. I will probably take a trip to Africa ahead of time to meet with people that can help us DO THIS Adventure. *** Start putting some money aside for the Adventure of your lifetime.
I don't care what faith you are, OK.
The only requirement that matters to me, is that you're willing to share your heart with others.
I've been on several over-seas mission trips. Let me tell you. It won't be about "what we're doing for them". It will be how "they" changed OUR LIVES.
You can't give what they give you. I always come home with more than when I left and I PROMISE YOU WILL TO. :)
We will go to another country and help others. I will find contacts in other countries that know of a community that needs help.
I LOVE construction projects but there are so many needs WE CAN PROVIDE to others. The woman, teenagers, and elderly will usually provide and teach games for the children to play, while the others can build something the people need.
RSVP if you at all interested in joining with other Adventurer's. You might not initally think you can afford this, but it will be a LIFE CHANGER.
*** If we go to Africa the cost might be a few thousand. Please don't change your RSVP ... things have a way of working out
OR for our first trip we might NEED To ride the coat-tails of another organization and go someplace closer like Mexico. In which case the cost might only be $800 to $1,200.
*** If you have the heart to serve, please RSVP yes, i might even look at opportunities here in STL that will have little to NO cost. :O)
