The 9-Month Mission Trip begins!
by Travis Deans
This is it! Students go back to school this week all over the country - the unofficial signaling of the end of summer, but the beginning of a great adventure. Teenagers see the new school year differently - for some it's a new football season, for others it's time for a new girlfriend or boyfriend, and for still others it's the beginning of a prison sentence. We need to challenge Christian students to see the new school year as a 9-Month Mission Trip. Think about it - transportation is already provided, they still get to eat strange and exotic food, and best of all, the people there speak their own language. Many of our teenagers are coming off of great experiences with God over this past summer - now is the time to make those experiences really count. A girl I know just posted the following on her facebook status - "I'm dedicating this school year to proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ! Who's with me!?!?" I could not have said it better myself. Let's pray that God raises up many more like this girl in the days and weeks to come. www.facebook.com/9monthmissiontrip
