Mission trip this year was a huge success! It is always a pleasure serving in Rapid City with Mission Discovery but this trip in particular was extra special. That partly has to do with the fact that it was the last mission trip that I will ever be a student on! Mission trips to me mean an incredible way to serve those less fortunate. Jesus says in the book of Matthew that “whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters you did for me.” That is exactly what we do on our mission trips. Whether that be building houses, painting walls, running a vacation bible school, or even making a peanut butter and jelly, we are working for Jesus. My favorite part of mission trip is always the worship. That kind of fellowship and feeling of the intense glory of our God can only be achieved when we are serving him! I have been on many mission trips throughout high school all teaching me many lessons, the most powerful of which is the importance to love. As mission discovery says: “to love is to serve.” Jesus commanded his disciples to love one another, it was his commandment and ultimately what he died for.
