First Church Year #28: Support
This week’s edition of the First Church Year series brought something different. Once again we didn’t go to our church. No, we didn’t skip church or take a break. This week we visited another church.
Don’t worry. We aren’t getting ready to begin a new church search. Been there. Done that blogging series. Don’t want to do it again.
No, this week we visited my daughter’s boyfriend’s church.
The reason we did this was because Lauren’s boyfriend (let’s call him John since that’s his name) John recently returned from a mission trip to India.
Just about everyone who went on this mission trip spoke. I didn’t take notes, so I don’t know what each one specifically spoke about. However, each one expressed what I would call several themes. These included:
- The poverty in India
- The love within the Church in India
- The focus on Christ in the Church in India
There was much more that could be said. However, I get asked sometimes why anyone would want to go on a mission trip to another culture when there are so many to help here. The fact is that in many ways followers of Christ in another culture like India can teach those of us here in the USA much more than we can teach them.
Have you ever gone to a foreign culture on a mission trip? Would you like to go on one?
