COSTA RICA TRAINING #3

CBC YOUTH MINISTRY

One month from today

In one month from today we will be in another country. I know it’s coming up quicker than usual and quicker than anyone expected. So at this moment, gather yourself and ask “what are things that I need to do in order to prepare myself for this trip?”


This trip is much more than physical - making the trip, packing, and working there. This trip will demand from you spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically. So i hope you do take time to think today, right now, about how you can prepare yourself.


Why?


Well because there are so many groups supporting you. Like we said at our last meeting, you represent the Gospel and its message of hope, peace, and joy. You represent your family, your biblical community, your church, your city, and your donors. We must do the best we can to be ready, serve faithfully, and represent well.


One month friends. One month.

Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil (Eph. 5:15-16)
