This year was my first ever time attending a mission trip and it was easily the best learning experience of my life when it comes to my walk with Christ. Everyone talks about missions but you never really know what it feels like until you actually go on one. A trial occurred in my life just before the trip and it was very hard on me personally. But this mission taught me so much about how privileged I am, how blessed I am, and how God has never left me for a second and never will, even when it feels like He has. I’ve learned that in order to grow, we need to feel like God isn’t there sometimes. This missions experience helped me grow in ways I’ve never imagined.
