A personal message from David L. Sgro. "A week-long short term mission trip can drastically change your life!"
1. Let's face it, most Americans don't see themselves as "rich". We see ourselves as "Middle Class", or "Upper Middle Class", or "Poor". But when Brough out of the United States we quickly realized just how finically blessed we are. come to realize that we aren’t the strong, good people we assumed we were. We’re broken and needy, fallen and finite, but still God works with and through us. 2. Taken out of our daily routines where wealth and comfort dull our spiritual senses, we reawaken to how powerful God truly is and how much we need him every minute of our lives. 3. Faced with overwhelming need, impossible opportunity, and open and hostile spiritual opposition, prayer once more starts to feel essential and powerful. 4. As we encounter unexpected obstacles and opportunities, the myth of “having things under control” is unmasked for the illusion it is. Control belongs to God alone. Ultimately I hope that you—for the first time or in a deeper way—have come to see that the gospel needed by the not-yet-Christians you go abroad to serve is the same gospel that’s needed in your own heart. The people you have come to love and serve are not merely good people trapped in hard circumstances who need a little help. They are fellow sinners, whose sin is no less deep and no less present than our own. And their deepest need—though it may look drastically different on the surface is no different than ours – The need for a Savior who not only says, “I am willing” but “It is finished,” so that they too can be welcomed home as sons and daughters of the King.
