Summer is here: It is Mission Trip Season!
If you or someone you know is planning on taking a mission trip this summer, check out Bread for the World’s new resource Getting Ready to Come Back.
Mission trips can be life-changing experiences. Research shows, however, that they often are not. One reason is that groups spend many hours preparing for their trip—but little time preparing for what happens when they return.
Getting Ready to Come Back helps Christians returning from mission trips become effective advocates to end hunger and poverty. Tools throughout the resource help teams prepare for their trip, reflect on their experiences, and take action once back home—all with the goal of making a long-term impact by helping address the causes of hunger and poverty. The guide also includes Bible studies, suggested discussion topics, and prayers for each part of the journey.
Order yours today or download it for free. The printed version is spiral bound and conveniently-sized to be carried in a back pack. ($10 each, or $25 for five copies.)
