Sandy Graves recently went to Greece on a GO Trip through Bethel to serve our partners AMG in Athens.
"When I started considering this step I vacillated between excitement and 'what have I done?!' I am so glad God allowed me this blessed adventure and I pray that I will not forget what great things He has shown me. The first few days we were blessed with a tour of many significant sites there - many of the places where Paul started new churches. We then worked hard with doing a variety of tasks that were as simple as cleaning, to listening and doing activities with the refugees. Yes, we were tired at the end of each day AND received such blessings. God is really working on me to love as He instructs and does. If you have an opportunity - don't miss it! It is worth it!"
If you have never been on a mission trip and/or travelled internationally, take this encouragement from Sandy and pray about if God is leading you to apply for one of Bethel's trips.
We have two upcoming trips to Greece, where Sandy served, receiving applications now. There is a Young Adults team going June 7-15 (apps due April 5) and a Women's team going June 15-23 (apps due April 9). We also have a team going to serve with our partner, FFHM, in Oaxaca, Mexico, August 10-18 (apps due April 10). See trip details and apply by going to the Global Outreach webpage and choosing "GO Trips" on the top of the page. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
