Last week, the Washington Post offered THIS interested article on the present state of Christian missions (yes, the Washington Post). In particle, the author highlights the growing popularity – and growing criticism – of short-term mission trips. I would love to hear your comments on the article, as I know that many of your have been on short-term mission trips.
– If you’ve been on a short-term mission, how has it influenced your life?
– How did your work effect the long-term ministry going on in that place?
– Are these trips more about “an experience” for the church members or a strategic help for the long-term ministry in that location?
– Are these trips a waste (mismanagement) of God-given resources, or a way of serving and glorifying God around the world?
Leave a comment; I’d love to hear what you think. And I’ll share my thoughts, too.
