The best way I can describe the experience is this: Get out of your comfort zone. If it takes two miles or a thousand, know your limit and test the borders. Mission work is not only to help serve, but to grow in your relationship with God. While you work, your faith, patience, courage, and strength is being tested and refined through every bump in the road. You learn to rely on your Father for everything, and in doing so, your work is not only blessed and multiplied, but it grows you as a person, an individual in the hands of Christ.
