On mission trips the mindset is what “we” are bringing to “them” – wherever “them” may be found. After all, “we” have more, know more, can give more than “them”.
The first thing we noticed as our van pulled into the church parking lot was the larger than life banner spread across the cinder block walls of the Sunday School building. It was the 23rd verse of the short book of Jude: Snatch them from Hell.
This church has an agenda, and they are not ashamed or afraid to let you know. That is their mission – to seek and save the lost who are perishing. The boldness of their statement quickly humbled and convicted me. While I did bring many gifts to “them”, this passion for the perishing was one they had given to me, definately one that I can bring home.
