Short term missions usually include both giving and receiving. Those who go on trips often learn a lot and gain a better understanding of missions in general, but most importantly, they build relationships with different people.
Scott McClelland joins us to talk about the importance of relationships in missions. He also shares his experiences throughout the years and how he has maintained connections across the world.
As a leader of FX Missions, Scott is frequently building friendships with other ministries, missionaries, and pastors. God has used these experiences in his life to impart mutual encouragement for him and those he meets.
