A few weeks ago I had the honor of guest posting over at Passionate Homemaking about 7 Ideas for a Stay-at-Home Summer Mission “Trip.” I know the summer is now coming to a close, but hopefully these will give you some ideas to be on mission with your family all year round!
Here’s an excerpt of the post:
Some of my most memorable summer experiences as a teenager involved going on both domestic and international mission trips. Whereas many of my peers looked forward to tanning on the beach or taking a trip to Disney World during our summer breaks, I spent the school year raising money for my next mission trip adventure–whether it be to the inner city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the rugged coastlines of Scotland, or the poverty-stricken villages of Peru.
I couldn’t deny God’s calling to go and serve–and proclaim His gospel to the nations. I met my husband while serving a year-long term in Costa Rica after college. After we married, we spent summer “vacations” in China and Africa. And after our first daughter was born, we spent a semester ministering to refugees in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
When we returned to the States and continued to grow our family, I struggled with how we’d apply our call to missions while living full-time in the United States.
I soon learned that families can minister both internationally and locally from home!
