5 Reviews on Experience Mission
I spent time in Costa Rica for three months and loved it so intensely. I will cherish it forever. The most special space within my heart. It brought so much peace to me, and I believe my host family is my family. They were so kind to me and profoundly touched me. It was a wonderful as well as a learning journey. It was different from what I had imagined it would be. However, I tend to be at ease with my surroundings, and I was awed by having no idea what would happen next. It was an exciting experience. But, we were also the first team that partnered with a community leader within the first established city, so we were sort of Guinea pigs of that collaboration, which was quite stressful and somewhat nervous at its conclusion. The partnership hurt several individuals on the team's experiences, and it was an upsetting experience. However, overall, I would not alter the way it was. The Lord has used everything, and I am eternally thankful for it. I will not forget the experience.
I genuinely believe that the mission trip was the most part, my responsibility to me to ensure it was an excellent mission trip. There were numerous occasions to be angry or thankful. There were plenty of chances to complain or to be patient. There were multiple chances not to do anything or get engaged. I did my best to get the most out of my mission, and I am genuinely thankful to God for going through this life-changing experience.
In six months, you discover a lot about yourself. You are exposed to your weaknesses and strengths. God has utilized my experience in EM Africa to point me in the direction He planned for me.
Amazing experience! My best decision ever! I was lost, but I am found, and I made lifetime friends through the process. They showed me where I could see God in the most remarkable ways and how I could be in touch with God. I have learned much about my religion and how to communicate more effectively with God. I have learned that love is more vital than everything and that the people you surround yourself with and the people you surround yourself with affect your life more than you comprehend. I can't thank everyone who was a part of this trip enough for helping me develop my faith and vision for my next steps! It's been an honor to be part of this fantastic chance!
The Lord works in mysterious ways, and it’s the moments you expect God to show up the least that He shows up the most.
Throughout my time in South Africa, I not only got to know a different culture and country, but I also got to know an entirely different people group.
I got to learn their names, hear their stories, share my stories and build relationships that never would’ve happened if I decided not to go and backed out.
Trust me, I had every opportunity to, but when you allow God to do a work in your life and also pour into your life through relationships with others.
It’s a truly indescribable experience of what God takes you through and how He brings you to the other side.
