It all started when ... My 16 year old daughter prompted both my husband and myself that it was time to get serious and sign up for a mission trip! I enjoyed getting to know ... All the Living Water Reps as well as the others from our church, most of which I had not met before. Things that challenged and changed me ... Bathroom accommodations challenged me and getting to know the people of the village changed me!
It all started when ... I signed up with my church. I enjoyed getting to know ... everyone! The staff, the LWI Team, and even my own team members. Some I've known my whole life, some just met that week. It was special to do something like this with old and new friends. Things that challenged and changed me ... was just to do it. Get signed up. Once you are there seeing and feeling everything that this trip brings, it becomes a pleasure as opposed to a challenge.
It all started when ... I was getting close to the end of my semester of school and I really was wanting to go on some type of adventure. I have always wanted to go on a mission trip and when I mentioned this to my dad he told me to look at Living Water International. I decided to browse the website and see what it was all about. When I was reading people's stories and looking at the dates, the El Salvador trip seemed to work out perfectly! Going on this trip was a last minute decision. I was so lucky that I was apart of this experience, it was the best choice I have made!
It all started when ... My daughter expressed an interest in going on a mission trip with me.
It all started when ... I felt the call to serve as a missionary a few years back, but I made a number of excuses (money, time, safety, etc). One day I just felt like I had to there was no more time to wait so I went online and signed up. I enjoyed getting to know ... Everyone on the team and the people in the community, especially the kids.
