How to fill out this questionnaire
As you consider each question, think about the details that made your experience memorable. Many times people write about their mission trip and use sentences like “I grew spiritually” or “the community we served was blessed by our service.” These are not bad things, but if you find yourself writing vague statements like these, dig a little deeper and think about what specific experience brought that sentence to mind, and write that down! People love to read specific examples. Please share details, however small they might seem. See the examples to below to inspire you.
“Our team ministered to a group of children.”
“Our team shared the gospel with a group of children in a community center. We explained the gospel colors to them. For each gospel color, we gave the children a bead of that color to add to a bracelet as we explained the meaning.”
“A local community center invited some children to a service that our team had organized. After playing a few games with the twenty children that came, we presented the gospel to them. We explained the gospel colors and their meanings as the children created a bracelet with colored beads representing each gospel color. At the end of the service, one of the younger boys responded to the invitation to give his heart to the Lord.”
