The trip to Bay Area was not only a great opportunity to meet and support the church there, but it was also extremely nourishing to my spirit. I found that living with brothers and sisters and having a structured daily schedule improved my relationship with God greatly. Together, we learned how to take gaps with the Lord in worship, turn to Him while doing daily tasks and shout for joy in all things. And, although we may be from different countries, we can live as a family and all have the same heart for God. It is so glorious that we could come together to pursue God and strengthen one another in Christ. I give thanks to God for this amazing, meaningful, and unforgettable mission trip.
