A short term missions trip can be a life changing experience. When you take the time to immerse yourself in a completely new and unfamiliar culture, you’ll receive a certain perspective that will forever alter how you look at life and those around you. You’ll even begin to see and notice things within your own culture that you take for granted and perhaps some elements that need to be changed. Your world-view shapes who you are in every way. Hopefully your time abroad will expand that view into one that is more internationally informed and spiritually focused.
