i agree with you mitch that we dont do enough in the us. my principal is trying to let us go to arizona to build a school on an indian reservation but the head person says we are to young to build a school. so its kinda hard to be missionaries in the us. :roll:


Did somthing work out yet chelsa?? Remember even if you don't go anywere you can still be an influence to those around you. That's what a missionary does and is all about.

Serve God :wink:

That's really cool! We had a couple random groups from our school go too. It's good to see people really help out. I remember when a group from my school went down to Costa Rica to "help out" and all we did was build a sidewalk. It warms the cockels (that's right, the cockels) of my heart to see America helping ourselves. I just wish that we did more on the international level.

OK time to set my reputation straight. Mr. Board Manager Person, the phrase that you bleeped out is a common idiom.

Check out this URL:http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-coc2.htm

So the phrase was: It warms the cockles of my heart. I hope it doesn't get bleeped out this time.

As a side note to anyone who thinks I would lower myself enough to use curse words, you're wrong. I have never cursed and I don't plan on starting. Thank you.

Yeah, I know him personally, and he is not the kind of guy that would say something that should be censored... unless it reveals national secrets... :P jk

Well...I guess if you know him then he's got to be alright. Although...I'm still not too sure about you for that matter. :smt002 J/K!!! You're awesome!!!

Yea, the problem with the international level is the money!! It is deffenitly an experience you can't buy with money when you go though. :D

That's why I think it's cool that we are starting to do more "American mission trips". My conference youth department (UCC) is going down to mississipi durring christmas break.

And earlyer on this forum track is information about my Conference's Pathfinder Teen Mission Adventure which is also a low cost, service oriented, spiritual high... :mrgreen:

Thanks Katie... I'm really feeling it... ouch :smt089 J/K I can take a joke.

I don't know if I've mentioned it on here or not, but hey... I've been to Costa Rica on a mission trip, with Dice Guy. That was a really cool experience. We helped out with VBS in Alajuela, about 10 miles from the capital. The kids were awesome and it was really fun getting to spend a week getting to know them.

We'll be praying for you, hope you have a great trip...

It was hot in Costa Rica... but the wind was always blowing so it actually felt a lot better than it did here. It wasn't humid in Alajeula, but once we got up into the mountains and the cloud forests it was, the humidity is almost 100% for most of the year up there... crazy :P We where only there for 2 weeks, i wish we could have stayed longer, but we were already misisng one week of school.

humid and HOT! Goodness! But that really didn't matter, we were helping and that's what counted. I did, however, simply enjoy being in a foreign place. Especially when we (rider1000) got to go zip-lining through the rainforest, just like robin hood. :smt063 (OK, so maybe that was just an excuse to use the emoticon) But seriously, the Costa Rica trip was awesome. I just wish we could have helped the poorer people while we were there. Since we were aiding a school, we didn't see very many. I guess that's why Romania had such an effect on me. It was like entering a time warp. Horse-drawn carts adorned the streets. Each house had a well and a farm where all their food came from. Our singing group was amazed to see what other people lived like. But what they had, they gave. They all pooled their money together and bought our director a picture that made sounds and lit up. They also got each of us a post card. I left that church (which they had been building for 10 years) crying. I had gone there listening to a CD player and hoping I could find an internet connection while they were just trying to survive. It was quite the moving expierience.

I wasn't really that bad. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

That is really cool. I stopped by Bass on my way back from a trip to Waveland, Mississippi. I hope you will post a short report about your trip!

I have been on a mission trip to Costa Rica as well. It is a really wonderful experience. Our group built a classroom and a set of bathrooms for an Adventist school started by Wala Wala College.

A mission trip will do that for you. Getting the chance to see how the rest of the world is living will really open your eyes. :shock: If you ever get the chance to go on a mission trip, do so... even if it is only to a place in the US, we can still help. :D

Everyone could, and a lot of the time, it's the adults that need their eyes opened. :shock:

Mission trips are absolutely awesome! Oklahoma conference holds a Mexico Mission trip every year during spring break. I got to go last year. We went to Monterrey, and I know I learned a lot, between working with my team members and working with the church there to hold VBS and evangelistic meetings and build a school. We had a prayer team, which I was part of, and it REALLY helped build my faith. I also got to improve my Spanish as well, so my instructor was happy about that. I saw God working in our daily lives, with things that mattered seemingly only to a few people. One time when I was doing outreach, I was serving as a translator and trying to give directions to the meetings to a store clerk (yes, we were allowed to "solicit"! :)) Not being familar with the part of town I was in, I was doing a pretty bad job of it, but as I prayed for help, a bystander who had been listening intently chimed in and began saying exactly what needed to be said. All I could do was stand aside, nodding my head and letting God work! When he was done, I started to thank him, but he stopped me and said that we are all brothers and sisters in Christ, and that all praise is for God. I was so amazed, I knew God had put the man in that place so when we came, he would be able to speak for God in our stead.

I am a big believer in Mission trips, especially those for the youth. I'm really excited about the trip we are taking next March. I can't wait to see what God has in store for us this time!
