Parents' Part in Mission Trips
You might not be going on your son or daughter’s mission trip, but as a parent you play an important role in the way they experience their trip after it’s over! You see, a big part of the mission trip experience is what a student does with the trip after it’s over. How will they apply what they’ve learned? How will it change the way they act? How will it impact their relationship with God? As a consistent presence in your teenager’s life, you can continue the influence of the trip well beyond your student’s return. Use the following ideas to help your student connect service in another community with life back home.
