Description

So you’re on fire, you want to make a difference, you want to change the world…but how?

Signing up for a service project or mission trip is a great first step. But you probably have a lot of questions. Are you ready for the different cultures you may encounter? How are you going to really connect with the people you serve? And what about when you come home—how do you make sense of all the things you’ve experienced? Will any of it make a lasting difference for anyone?

It turns out that if you really want to change the world, you have to change too. The only way that’s going to happen is if you spend time before, during, and after your trip preparing for and processing your work.

This Journal will help you think about:

• Why you’re going

• The people you’re serving

• Your relationship with your teammates

• How God factors into your service project

• The impact your experience has had on you

• How you can keep making a difference back at home

If you think you’re fired up to serve now, just wait! This hands-on Journal will equip you to serve in a way that sticks—both for you and those you serve.

• How you can keep making a difference back at home

If you think you’re fired up to serve now, just wait! This hands-on Journal will equip you to serve in a way that sticks—both for you and those you serve.
