I said yes to chaperoning a World Changers mission trip and no to my fears. It was a great week!
I said yes to sleeping on the floor and no to worrying about it. The first night, the air mattress felt like a touch of heaven it was so comfortable. I thanked the Lord for my bed.
I said yes to God’s power and no to concerns about lacking endurance. The first days were spent in an elderly woman’s home visiting with her and cleaning. Later in the week, my faith was tested while painting the ceiling of a porch. I worked on it for hours. It wasn’t until the next day that I realized my arms weren’t even tired!
With summer approaching, check out the mission trips your church will be taking or look for mission opportunities through the North American Mission Board. Pray about how God wants you to say yes, whether it’s to give, pray, or go.
We don’t have to worry about our fears or limitations. God can use us wherever we serve. He can make a difference in our life and someone else’s life!
