This time last year, I enthusiastically said “yes” to attending my church mission trip. Moments after agreeing to the last-minute opportunity, a Pinterest photo popped unto my iPhone screen. It reminded me that sometimes God calls us to a place far away, away from what we know in order to truly reconnect Him.
At a time where I was dealing with emotional heaviness, the trip gave me purpose. I knew God wanted me there. I came home rejuvenated and excited to continue to share God’s love and resuscitating hope.
When the time came to write my name down on the list for this year’s trip, I said “yes” again… I didn’t know that assured answer would soon waver.
