The Transforming Power of Mission Work

My blog friend Kelly, who always writes amazing, inspiring, and thought-provoking posts, has added a new one in the aftermath of her recent mission trip to West Virginia. In it she discusses how she was questioning (prior to her journey) whether her trip would really accomplish anything other than "assuage her liberal guilt" -- and how (after she returned home) she realized just how much she had given and gotten from being there. It's a great read, and I hope you'll all take the time to hop over and visit; it's a great example of just how transforming mission work can be, even if it's just in the next state.
