I have had the honor of attending a couple of these missions over the past few years. And as a recent college student, I am fully aware of how difficult it is to decide between a vacation at South Padre Island versus a Mission Trip full of serving in an OR all day. As much as I've loved the vacations, I've always come back from the mission trips feeling so much more refreshed and renewed. There is something about serving that refreshes the heart so much more than a vacation ever could.
Matthew 24:14 says "And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come." This is a simplistic practical way to proclaim God's love through actions and to serve one another in love.
It's also a tremendous blessing to see God work through the doctors to heal His people. Not only do we serve a God who heals, but also a God who loves. And there were countless of testimonies from the patients on how much they felt loved through our service. Not only will their lives be changed, but it will be testimony to all of their friends that God healed them. And to be a part of that is a tremendous blessing.
