I think that going on mission should be a thing that everyone looks forward to. We, the DLA students, recently had the amazing opportunity to mission through a few cities in RSA, Botswana and Zimbabwe. It was an incredible experience, not only because we got to experience new countries and cultures but we also had the privilege of serving at and building friendships with other churches. We got to work with some big built up churches and churches that had next to nothing. What astounded me was the fact that the people who had very little blessed us more than we felt we had blessed them.
We were also able to head into schools and do some kids ministry with the younger grades and take the assemblies for the older ones. It’s truly amazing knowing that you could’ve influenced a young girl or boy with your faith and that they could amount to great things because of your influence and obedience. One of the schools we went to in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, was a school for disabled kids and we had the privilege of dancing singing and praying with them. God really moved people that day because by the time we left, people had been filled by the Holy spirit, deaf ears were opened and some of the kids came to know christ.
There were many more miracles that happened, not because of us but because of the grace of God. It was an incredible time to not only strengthen the friendships with in our team but to also learn more about who we are in christ and to see our father’s heart for his people.
