Here is a quick idea that ran through my mind recently. We recently came back from Jamaica on a short-term mission trip with our student ministry. We have a burden now to reach our city with the Gospel. We are going to plan a mission trip soon (working on logistics now) to our own city. It will be overnight. We are working on making this mission trip as much a cultural difference as possible so our students can see what a mission trip is like. We are going to plan this small overnight trip exactly like we would a short-term mission trip to a foreign country. This is just a quick idea that I want to challenge you on. Why not consider doing this in your own city?
