The BIG Plan

In just a couple of days I’m leading a team of 12 students to Haiti with YWAM to work with Mission-Haiti. A couple of weeks ago we had our first trip planning meeting. We covered the packing list, jobs we’ll be doing, our accommodation, and travel plans.

For packing, we have to put 7 days worth of stuff in a carry on bag. That is because each person will be taking 2 suitcases of shoes to give away. Each August, kids get a pair of shoes that must last them one year. So, our packing must be LIGHT! We’ll be running a mini VBS, youth group each night, and a few construction projects. There are also a variety of other things we might do, as well.

One thing I’ve discovered in planning mission trip…you might have a plan of what you’ll be doing, but God always has a BIGGER plan. You might just have to scrap your plans.
