What follows is some of the fruit of what the Lord has taught me about short-term missions: the benefits of short-term teams for those sending and receiving them, as well as some suggestions. These matters are fresh on my mind, as I recently returned from leading a short-term trip overseas . . .
My PowerPoint presentation, “The Role of STMs in OPC Missions,” is available for you to use to help prepare your short-term missions team for service. I commend to you as further preparation an article by Daniel Rickett in which he describes how his study of Philippians gave him a new perspective on short-term missions as an expression of our heavenly citizenship on earth . . .
