I shared with the students my journey into missions and challenged them to pray that the Lord would use this trip to speak to them and give them direction into the future. We talked about Ephesians 2: 8-10 and how the Lord prepared them for this trip and plans to use it to mold them. The second thing I challenged them with was to make sure that their good works of feeding Compassion kids and leading VBS would cause others to glorify the Father (Matthew 5:16). The purpose of the trip is not for them to feel good about their deeds, but it is to glorify God!
I loved being about to encourage these missions minded students as they prepare to go out. Please be praying for them this coming week!
