Short-Term Fueling Long-Term Missions
Article Written by Ryan Martin, Lightbearers Ministry
Why do we, First Baptist Rogers, send teams on short-term trips? What is the value in supporting one week, 10 days, or two week trips over supporting only long-term mission work?
Ryan Martin explains the value of short-term mission trips for all believers who are called to missions, called to be "faithfully sending, encourage, advocate, and be involved in short-term missions," and those who are desiring the call God places on there lives.
