In this episode I talked with Bob Patterson who recently took a mission trip to Uganda. This was a short term trip in which Bob helped with a medical team. Though Bob is not a long term missionary today, he grew up on the mission field in Mexico.
Because he sees missions from both sides, he really has a great perspective on what the average person in the church can do to help their missionaries. He knows how to connect the person on the field to the person in the pew.
His recent trip was with Operation Renewed Hope. This is a short term group that is based out of his church. At their website you can find out much more information about being a part of one of their future trips.
