I hear a lot of Christians who, whether their students of mine or people I’ve met, who have said, you know, they’re going to another country to go on a mission trip. hey’re going to go during winter break or spring break and they’re gonna, you know, bring the love of Jesus, or bring some Bibles, or maybe try to help build some shelters or something.
And so there’s this ambivalence I have regarding mission trips.
And what always comes to my mind, and maybe this is just because I am a teacher, is this program called Teach For America.
