It Changed Me

We have all landed now back at home. Each missionary has preached 19 sermons, watched individuals choose Jesus and be baptized, loved hundreds of children (and adults), and in the midst of all of this our own lives have been changed. There were very few frills, only the call to work with “no regrets” for the sake of heaven. And it was there, in the middle of the Great Commission, that Jesus became more Lord and Savior than He had ever been. (Posted August 8, 2013)

This trip solidified my faith. I knew what I believed, but it's all come into much clearer focus for me. It reminded me of just how amazing God really is. I plan to keep that clear focus by praying, studying, and sharing more everyday.

I used to think going on mission trips meant sharing Jesus and seeing Him change others. Sometimes you are the person who is changed the most. Witnessing gives us opportunity to share Christ with others while reminding ourselves of our indescribable God who loves us.

I can only say what has happened in my life. Sharing His love to the people of Mechapa, Nicaragua has made my heart full of joy. This is something I want to do until Jesus comes.

We are missionaries. 
The trip to Nicaragua was amazing. I have NO REGRETS. It was all for Jesus, winning souls for the eternal kingdom.

God gave everything so that we could be with Him in heaven. Why wouldn't I do the same? Going on this mission trip made me realize that I have so much that I can do to say thank you to my Creator. I am going to take advantage of every opportunity I have to share His love with those around me.

I went to Nicaragua with the mindset that I had to win souls for Jesus. But the same people I tried to witnessing to witnessed to me; not by words or sermons, but by the way they portrayed God in their actions. This trip opened my eyes to why my spiritual walk hadn't been moving forward: because I was too content with where I was with Jesus. What I did for the people there cannot even begin to compare with what they did for me. This was my wake-up call. I plan on going on as many mission trips as possible. No regrets!
