Short Term Mission Trips

MissionsTeamWoven into the fabric of S.O.S. Ministries are Short Term Mission Trips.  Each trip is different based on the needs of those being served and based on what God chooses to do on a specific trip.  However, there is one common thread that ties all of these trips together- the fellowship each team has with one another.  Each day, the members of any given Short Term Mission Team begin and end in prayer, worship, testimony, opening and teaching the Scriptures, and breaking bread.  It is here that the black and white lines of the day are filled in with the colorful memories of what God did in and through a group of willing servants from different homes, denominations, and cultures, but with a common purpose and a common love of Jesus Christ in whose name they came.

In the fellowship of a missions team, all of the experiences of the trip come together in a concentrated and focused way that really can’t be described in words. The only way to understand it… is to GO…
