New Orleans Mission Trip Story 2022

One of our students wrote this essay for a class assignment: During the summer of 2022, I went on my second mission trip to New Orleans. On one of our last days there, I felt sick and didn’t want to go out that day. With the group, it wasn't possible for one of the leaders to stay at the house with me, so I had to go anyway. The next day was July 4th and there's always a big festival on that day. It is held at the same church every year and is a place for homeless people to go for food,...

NYC Mission Trip Story 2021

One of our students wrote this essay for a class assignment: My very first mission trip was to New York City in the summer of 2021. I had never been on a trip like this before, so I had no idea what to expect. Getting there I had already felt discouraged after having to go through the busy subway with ten people's suitcases and bags. We went to the house and all of us were exhausted. We had so many things packed into the next ten days, and I didn’t think I could do it. Starting out the...

God’s Grace in the Streets of New Orleans

Written by a student: “New Orleans summer mission trip story 2021: Today we met Leon. Leon was an older man, born and raised in New Orleans. He told us he had not talked to his family in the city in 20 years. We prayed for him. He told us that he grew up Baptist. I asked him after the prayer why he had not seen his family. He said that 20 years ago that the FBI had investigated the murder of his niece. He had been investigated and evidence showed he did not do it. He cried as he told us...

New Orleans Mission Trip 2020

We had an incredible trip to New Orleans this past week! While this week looked much different from the mission trips of the past, the word that kept coming up throughout the trip was obedience. We wanted people to know that they are loved, they are seen, and they are known, and we did not want difficult circumstances to dictate whether or not we chose to help people. In a time of paralyzing uncertainty, God still whispered “trust me” and by trusting Him, we learned this week that while...
