My first Mission trip

Its been on my heart for a while now to go on a mission trip. I have been saying for the past year that God is leading me to do something that has to do with children. When I heard about this mission trip to Colombia and the purpose was to work with kids in the foster system it immediately spoke to my heart. My husband and I have been thinking about becoming foster parents ourselves and praying to God to lead us in that direction. I believe that this opportunity presented itself to me to open up my heart even more to becoming a foster parent. I’m excited to go on this trip to see how God moves through me. I want to spread Gods word to others, especially children. I want to have an impact in anyway that I can while I am in Colombia, but I have a feeling that Colombia will have the biggest impact on me.
My biggest fear is definitely the language barrier, I want to be as impactful as I can while I am there and without being able to speak the language I worry that my impact wont be as great as I would want it to be. I am just Praying that God will show me how to use my heart, my actions and my love to help out as much as possible. I want to bring joy to these kids and to be able to see that joy first hand and know that I had a part in it. I want to make a difference. I hope that I come back with an even bigger heart to serve, give back and even foster children. I look forward to serving alongside some of my closest friends and coworkers and growing spiritually with them. I hope this trip has a lifelong impact on us all and those lives we touch while we are there! I can’t wait to share our experiences with everyone when we return!
