And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9
One of the most rewarding aspects of youth ministry I’ve experienced, was short term mission trips. To date, I have traveled to Jamaica, Mexico, Guatemala and Uganda. These overseas trips were particularly powerful because the students experienced how difficult life was outside of the United States. They realized just how good they had it back home!
Admittedly, students occasionally made poor choices. There were times when I wondered if my efforts were for naught.
