Whether your mission trip is a work project, hands-on evangelism, or for cultural exposure, your experience can be enhanced by several simple actions. Develop the personal disciplines of reading, prayer, and meditation in the atmosphere of the reality of God’s presence. But do not prepare alone. Missions is about people, and you need others’ help to strengthen communication and relational skills. Your mission trip can be a service to the missionary as well as a joy and refreshment to your own soul.
