Here’s me sharing why I think it’s so important for parents to send their children on mission trips.
 
It was one of the best things Karen and I did in raising our children. As parents, we need all the help we can get in discipling our children.
 
At AIM, we’ve been doing this for over 20 years and have seen the fruit of more than 86,000 who have gone on our mission trips. We’ve got an amazing staff who cares passionately about life change.

  • We just sent our second team off to Haiti this morning with AIM. Wish I could go back for a third time this year, but my son was born two weeks ago, so it wasn’t gonna happen.

  • Dear Daddy Seth.

  • I heard once that the number 1 reason why students don’t go on mission trips is because the parents are too afraid to let them go. thanks for the advice. i hope to be a willing parent for my kids, well maybe even more of an advocate for missions w/ my kids

  • I want to go on one of these trips you offer.
    I don’t even know where to start.
    I am in financial straits right now and don’t know when things will be better.
    How does one go on an AIM trip in such case?
    I see the value of exposing children to the world outside our comfortable American culture.
    Unfortunately, when our children were of the age receptive to this we were living on a Christian college professor’s poverty salary and couldn’t even afford to visit relatives.
    I will have to say, though, that our poor years taught our children a sensitivity and compassion for the poor and downtrodden that remains with them.
    So, maybe those of us without your opportunities can still teach missions, just at home. Even during those years, when I saw a chance to give even in small ways to those in “places” worse than ours, I did, with a caring heart…and the children were witnesses to that.
    I’m praying for your time at camp.

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
