Item description for Mission Trips That Matter: Embodied Faith for the Sake of the World by Don C. Richter...
Overview You've packed your duffel bag, unpacked, cut back and repacked, gotten your passport in order, winced your way through the vaccinations, researched the culture and learned critical phrases in the native language. Perhaps you're so busy preparing to do mission that you've overlooked preparing to be mission. Sometimes, it's only after you return from a journey that you realize just how much you received compared to what you gave. Mission trips and alternative spring breaks are on the rise. Millions of youth and adults are taking time to help people in need across the state and across the globe. In a world torn by misunderstanding and inequalities, making sure missions are mutually beneficial and just instead of patronizing is an urgent concern. Learn to transcend personal experience and connect your itinerary with the gospel - even before you leave home.

Follow Jesus and live out Christian faith through missions Jun 4, 2008
Following Jesus and actively living out our Christian faith is at the heart of "Mission Trips That Matter." Through scripture, personal stories, insightful questions, and prayful activities, leaders can guide others to a deeper understanding of Christ's incarnational ministry. Whether you are leading a one-day mission service event or a week-long mission trip, this resource can assist leaders with deepening one's spiritual experience with God. As a pastor and Christian educator, I highly recommend Don Richter's insightful book on missions and faithful discipleship.

I am planning my third adult mission trip, and I found this book to be extremely helpful. It offers very practical advice, great stories, prayers to use on the trip, preparation ideas, and reflection suggestions. I highly recommend this book for anyone planning a mission trip for youth or adults. Thank you Don for this wonderful tool.
