After mission trips, Matt invites team members to share personal experiences from the trip. The following article is from Sam Krotz who was one of the January 2019 Mission Team Members.
If you are reading this then you are probably interested in Living the Adventure Ministries and what they do. You might also just be reading this because you wanted to hear about the mission trip to Haiti that was done in January. Let me tell you that at first going to Haiti was a scary thing. I heard that it was poor and that many people there worshiped voodoo. But I would have to say that going to Haiti was by far the best experience that I have had on a mission trip. The people were amazing and willing to spend time with you even if they could not speak to you.
Our actions speak louder than words and this trip was a prime example of that. It was amazing to be able to work with them and see how they do the work that they do. Church was one of the most beautiful sounds that I have heard and the smiles and laughter of the people after church was pleasing to hear. This trip was amazing and I urge anyone who would want to go on a mission trip to go, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you, and surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 19-20. I hope that everyone one day will have an experience like Haiti, but for now, remember what Jesus asks of us and God bless you.
