Decisions, decisions. We all have to make big ones at some point in our lives.
For me, I have one I need to make within the next week or so.
You see, I have this amazing opportunity to go to Germany this summer for a "singing" campaign with Memorial Road Church of Christ. It is a month long mission trip and they are even supposed to go to the Czech Republic. The dates are from May 17th to June 17th. The cost: $3,250. The problem? The date is during the two weeks of church camp that I normally go to. I have been going since I was about 6, so naturally, I don't want to miss it. The 2nd problem? It's $3,250!!
Here lately, I feel like God has put mission work on my heart and I feel like this is what He wants me to do for the summer. I love to travel, I love Germany, I love singing, I want to do mission work, so I feel like this is perfect for me. I think I have an idea of how to come up with the funds, so that's not the problem. Also, I have never been away from my parents for more than 2 weeks, so being away from them for a month is going to be really hard on me, so hard that I don't think I'd be able to enjoy myself and fully serve God like I should on a mission trip. Got any tips for homesickness?
I know that this is an opportunity of a lifetime and I'd most likely be going with my friend Taryn (if she decides to go) so I know it'd be fun and well worth it, but I still don't know.
I have so much praying to do.
What do you think?
