There has always been a part of me that has wanted to go on a mission's trip. When I was in high school our choir went to Canada and England. Both were amazing opportunities...we sang in front of lots of people. I got to be part of an outreach. It felt good.
But I really want to see a third world country. It's one of my heart's desires. In most pictures the people always look so happy. Even though they have so little and the conditions are horrible...there is joy. Maybe it's my search for contentment or just my curiosity, but hopefully someday I would love for my whole family to experience this first hand.
One of my very favorite bloggers Meg Duerkson from Whatever just got home from Sierra Leone, Africa. She's been documenting her trip and I find it absolutely mesmerizing. I leave her site everyday with tears in my eyes.
She gave me permission to use these amazing photos. Thank you Meg. If you haven't already, you need to go check out her blog. Go back several days and read from the beginning of her journey. I guarantee you will leave humbled and moved.
Have you ever been on a missions trip? Would you like to?
Have a blessed day.
