Personally I hope to walk away from the work sites looking back knowing I made a positive difference in someone’s life. Beyond the specific requirements of the activity I most likely take away lessons and experiences that will help me in life after the mission trip is over. This trip will also include an aspect beyond the physical work of self -reflection and prayer. Each night we will journal our thoughts and ideas. During the periods of reflection I will certainly learn a little about myself and ways I can improve my overall well-being. The trip will also be a time of personal sacrifice; I will be deprived of the comforts and luxuries I am use to at home. I am looking forward to this positive experience that I’m sure will be remembered for the rest of my life.
