The Grace Youth mission trip to Arkansas back in 2014 is one of the best trips i’ve ever taken (the other best trip also being a Grace trip). The satisfaction of helping others, bonding with fellow youth, a chance to see parts of the country I had never previously seen… it was a rewarding experience that I highly recommend to anyone considering a mission trip.
There was plenty of work involved, make no mistake about that. We would spend hours in the hot Arkansasian heat picking eggplant or harvesting watermelon or whatever produce our day’s field had to offer. But knowing that the food we picked would go to help hungry families was more than enough reason to wake up the next morning and get back to it.
The experience I shared is something that I will take with me for a very long time!
