Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone
One thing that may cause you to not go on a mission trip is the fear of getting out of your comfort zone. Stepping out of your comfort zone can be extremely difficult to do, especially if it means going out of the country. A week long mission trip causes you to get out of your comfort zone and participate in something you may not be all that comfortable doing. Besides the feelings of nervousness and trepidation you may feel towards a mission trip, there are so many opportunities for growth.
1. A mission trip brings spiritual growth
A mission trip is a great opportunity to hear God speak. It is easier to hear God when our focus is on Him. Once someone serves those in need, its becomes clear that God created us for something greater and for a specific purpose. In everything you do on a trip, you see God move in ways you have never seen before.
2. A mission trip unveils gifts and skills
On a trip you may be asked to do something you had never done before, but may be really good at. Whether its construction or evangelizing to those in the community, you may be put in a situation that is out of your comfort zone. This may be the time God reveals to you a new gift or skill that can benefit those in need.
3. A mission trip builds a servant heart
After experiencing a community of poverty and in need, you are more likely to find a way to serve your community at home. Seeing how much your efforts can make a difference in the lives around you can inspire you to get involved in ways you never thought you would. God may use mission trips to change your heart in a way that desires to bring good to those around you.
Going on a mission has so many more benefits than just these, but consider getting out of your comfort zone and experience God work in ways you never imagined
