"How was your mission trip?"
If you've ever returned from a trip and been asked that question, how do you even begin to answer it? A 2007 mission trip to Lower Beech Fork, KY happened to coincide with our 20th anniversary. As our 30th anniversary approached in June, we thought "why not celebrate it with a mission trip?" Time and money were somewhat of a limiting factor, but we wanted to challenge ourselves a bit.
When one of Jeff's colleagues mentioned that her church was taking a trip to New Mexico, he BOLDLY asked if we could join them. Our son TJ went on a trip to southern Mexico with the church, Nappanee Brethren in Christ, at the end of his senior year in high school, so we knew the pastor a bit. Life was busy leading up to the trip--we helped with a tiny bit of fundraising and attended a couple of planning meetings, but confess we didn't have a really good handle on where we'd be going, what we'd be doing and how we'd get there!
