What are the 4 most important things to know before going on a short-term missions trip?

1.  You don’t know as much about “their” culture as you may think.

2.  You don’t truly understand what you do know, even if you have visited the culture many times.

3.  You don’t have as much to offer “those people” as you may think…or what you do have to offer may not be what you have prepared to give!

4.  You have more to learn “from” them than you realize.

KidZ At Heart International’s MobiliZation Director, Charlotte Moore, has lived in South Africa for over ten years. As most career missionaries who are “doing good” will tell you, the longer she lives among the people the more she realizes that she doesn’t know the culture.

Charlotte is one of the heroes who labors on the KidZ team to equip people to reach and teach kids for Christ within their own culture. Please pray for her work today! You can read more about it at www.kidZatheart.org/trips.
