What I took from the mission trip experience was inspiration to do more. During the week in Jamaica we saw videos of the founders of Next Step ministries and their journey. The video series was about them climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and the mission work they did and the people they met leading up to the climb.
One story I remember is the story of the American couple who founded a recycled-bead-jewelry making business, which provided money for the woman of the Rwandan village they moved to. The reason I remembered that story is that we got to take some bead bracelets home and every time I put it on, I think of the people, who changed their way of living, relocated their family and quit their amazing jobs, to make others lives better.
But back to the founders of Next Step, their journey inspired me to do more. To make a difference, not only in America, but in all the other countries of the world. The need is everywhere, we just have to offer our assistance.
