Erica Gadsby, YWAM Missionary and International Mission Adventures Leadership Team member just posted her top ten tips for making your mission trip a success. She’s a veteran of numerous cross-cultural outreachs and an all-around amazing person, so these tips are so totally perfect. Here are three:
- Relax! Have fun, don’t worry if the schedule changes, and expect things to be different than what you’re used to.
- Travel Light. Passport, favourite pillow (so you can sleep anywhere), good book, comfy shoes, sarong (which doubles as a sheet, a towel, a table cloth, a skirt…)—what more do you really need?
- Water, Water, Water Wanna know the best way to get sick while overseas? You got it, dodgy water. Check out where your drinking water is coming from. If in doubt, go bottled and forget about getting that mystery ice with your Coke!
To get the rest of these top ten valuable tips, you’re gonna wanna head on over to the Mission Adventures New Zealand blog!
