If you are going on a mission trip anytime soon you must have your team read the posts in this article that can be accessed by clicking HERE. Jamie "the very worst missionary" give a perspective from one who IS a missionary and what she observes when the short-term mission teams come racing into her community to throw their faith grenades at everyone and then head back home patting themselves on the backs for what they perceive as a job well done when that may not necessarily be the case from the people they "ministered" to. You must have your team wrestle with the truth in each one of the posts Jamie has written. It is really good stuff to consider so that you mission trip can have the best possible outcome for your team AND those you are there to minister to.
