Go and Serve Reflections
This year’s Go and Serve trip to Mobile, Alabama was transformative for both the students and leaders. As we were forced outside of our comfort zones, our faith became real and relationships were deepened.
Here are a few of the reflections from the students:
- Before the trip my faith was there but as a result of the trip my faith became real and tangible.
- This was the first time I saw what it meant when people talked about making God’s kingdom real on earth. I found out what it meant when the Lord’s Prayer says, “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.”
- When we came on the trip we stayed with the people we knew. Now at the end of the trip we know everyone on a deeper level.
- Before the trip I thought homeless people were just lazy and uneducated. After hearing the stories of the homeless, I know that just isn’t true.
