21 Things-Mission Romania-Part 3

Often you think a missions trip is for the people you are going to help. Actually it is just as much for you as it is for them. From raising support to go on the trip to coming back home and sharing the experience; God continues to teach small little lessons. Today I am continuing the 21 things we learned on the mission field with 15-21. You can read Part 1 and Part 2 on previous post.

15) That hitchhiking is an acceptable form of transportation in Romania that people pay for.

16) That working together as father and sons was dynamic and we make a great team.

17) That the power of prayer is essential on the missions field and can be literally felt.

18) That in Europe they have different electrical outlets. And a 110 volt hair trimmer doesn’t like 220 volts of power.

19) That your spiritual gifts, talents, and abilities come alive in a new and fresh way when you go out into the field.

20) That being tall and black qualifies me for this question in Europe, “Do you play in the NBA?”

21) That people from other cultures will trust you more when they see what you believe before you say what you believe.

Now that we have our first trip under our belt we are eagerly waiting for the next opportunity. We want to make it a goal to do something with missions every year.
