Partnerships in Missions: How to be Flexible and Humble

Episode 204 - Gena Thomas

If someone were to ask you, “What do people do on short term missions trips?” you might think of evangelism or building projects. But what about encouraging or listening? Gena Thomas makes a returning visit to remind us of the many ways that people can serve through short term missions.

During the show, she points out the value of flexibility and humility, especially for the team visiting the long term missionaries. When a team is flexible, it allows for relationships and partnerships to be formed. By serving wholeheartedly, short term teams can bring great encouragement and benefit to the organizations they work with.
