Rick Powers is not a missionary, but he has been on several missions trips. As the leader of a youth group which has organized and taken many trips, I found it interesting to hear his insight on what it takes to go on a trip to help a missionary on the foreign field. He also shared with me some of the ways that young people are changed after a trip such as this.
When I spoke with him, he was with a group of 14 young people and leaders who were painting a church in Mérida, México.
If you would like to contact Bro. Powers with questions about organizing your own mission trip you can do so by visiting his church’s website.
