Short-Term Missions Experience Part 1

Short-Term Missions Experience Part 1

Every STM trip I’ve been part of has proven to be a huge blessing. Each individual team and experience uniquely impacted my life, including the English Camp in Berlin. 

My son, Ian, and I were part of the team who joined Rebekah Carson and other missionaries to serve in Altglienicke, a locale in former East Berlin. The first day of camp, as we greeted students, I met a young man who seemed uncomfortable. In my attempts to communicate with him, I realized he was autistic. He navigated the morning with discomfort as he spent time with his assigned camp partner. 

Throughout the week our teammate, who accompanied this young man, shared with us the camper’s daily struggles and progress. We prayed he would experience God’s grace, feel comfortable, loved, and see Jesus in his partner and the activities. The last day, as we talked to students and parents, I came face to face with this young man who was no longer physically closed off with eyes downcast. Instead, he was smiling and gave me a high five! 

The Father heard our prayers, allowing our brother to minister with the love of Christ. Perhaps the greatest blessing of this trip was a reminder that there are no limits to what the Lord will do if we dare to ask and believe His promises!
