If your church or organization is planning a mission trip, it may fall to families and the community to help out with fundraising. The great thing about this is you can get friends and family excited about an upcoming mission and let others get involved with sponsoring your trip if they would like to.
Planning a mission trip for your Teen Youth Group is much different than planning for just any other mission trip. While many people come to church together as a family, they almost never stay in the same place after arriving.
Why go on a mission trip? And why go on a mission trip to Zambia? Back in 1998, I had no idea how to answer those questions. Then, I was just a 21-year-old college student who had never left the United States. Nothing could have prepared me for almost two weeks on a mission in Zambia. The long-lasting effects of what happened there years ago still impact my life to this very day.
