Applications for spring break and summer 2014 BU Missions trips are due tomorrow. If you’re still looking for reasons to apply, here are a few from Carole Meriwether, coordinator for Urban Missions. She wrote this list for her team going to Eagle Pass over spring break, but many principles apply to all BU Missions trips.
Why do I think you should consider submitting a last-minute application to Eagle Pass tonight?
-To continue the work that was started last Spring Break. Baylor Missions believes in committing ourselves to a location and to our community partners for a few years. Sometimes students go multiple years, sometimes they pass the baton to others.
-To engage in meaningful work over spring break and remind ourselves to slow down, notice the world around us and take the time to read a book to a child.
-To learn about the world in which many live. Where they are faced with issues related to immigration, rural poverty, English as a second language and more. Sometimes we learn best by seeing and hearing from others.
-To spend time in community over spring break with others who serve in Waco. Enjoy time with diverse group of students who want to serve and to learn and to engage with the world around them.
-To learn more about yourself, about God and about missions.
