Hey friends! Today I wanna take some time to talk about my missions trip! I travelled to New York City and I had an amazing time.
The theme of this trip was to learn how to pursue the passions God has blessed you with. God uses our passions and our spiritual gifts to fulfill the purpose He has for our lives. Another main lesson for the week was moving onward in our faith. It is so easy to get stuck in one place with our relationship with God, but we need to always keep going. Sometimes we will find ourselves on the wrong path, but Jesus will always welcome us back with open arms.
Something I took away from the week was only going after things that really make me feel inspired. I don’t wanna be the person who does what everyone else does anymore. That’s something I struggle with a lot, and I’m just ready to become the person Jesus made me to be. During high school, I think a lot of people try to fit in the mold or be a certain way. This school year, I want to really focus on who I am supposed to be.
Anyways, my trip was amazing. I have a love for a new place, and New York City is breathtaking. I worked at a soup kitchen all week and it was very eye opening! Everyone was so thankful for our volunteering and it was such an encouragement to me. It reminded me to be thankful for all the blessings God has brought into my life even if they don’t seem like a big deal at the time.
So, now I’m just going to share a lot of pictures down below that I took while I was sightseeing! Thank you for tuning in, and I hope you enjoyed my blog today!
