What would your 2023 mission trip look like?

Your parents, your church, your college, your future—picture each of them. Now picture them in an alternate reality.

In this reality, your parents suffer from PTSD because of the devastating effects of a war they grew up in. You may not have a church, but you definitely have a religion. It’s made up of rituals and empty traditions, however. As long as you can remember, you’ve been taught not to associate with people from other religious groups. They are the enemy.

This is the reality for many young people your age in this country.

Despite their reality, or maybe because of it, there are spiritually hungry people in this city. People God has already been drawing to Himself. And we need help finding them.

In this city people are always about: strolling down the walking streets, having coffee with a friend. Many of the younger people speak English and are eager to talk to Americans. We need help meeting these people and finding out about their lives.

There are a handful of “seekers” with whom the long-term team has been able to begin reading the Bible. But they believe God has more. Will you come and take the initiative with relationships to help them find these people? These are people who would fall in love with Jesus if they were introduced to Him.

As an Edger, you can come help find the people in this city whom God is already drawing to Himself!

This team needs young people who love Jesus, who aren’t afraid to step into new relationships and who will boldly share what God has done in their lives. Are you not someone who shares boldly yet, but open and ready to learn? We’ll help, equip, and encourage you in just that!
