To spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ by supporting missionaries at home and abroad and conducting short term mission trips.
We returned from our Mission Trip at the end of June and all 10 of us have been changed. Here are a few of our own personal thoughts, testimonies and changes that we wanted share.
The greatest part of the missions trip was seeing the desire of people to know God and His fulfillment of that desire. He showed us how everything is truly in His hands and if we simply go and do what He tells us, we will experience the true wonder and power of God. The trip forced me to step out of my comfort zone, to be obedient and to let God worry about the consequences. These are things I’ve heard, but never stepped out to experience. Andrew
For me this was a hard trip. It took me a while to get used to all the people staring at us. Like my father I was forced to step out of my comfort zone to serve God. I was a little bit surprised to see how their youth group was to ours. How they walk to church without the prompting of their parents. One of them had parents that were her going to church. Overall the trip was alright it definitely helped me talk to people who have rarely seen my race. Jonathan
The Scripture in Proverbs 16:9 “In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps” really came to life before, during and after our mission trip. Before because the LORD put in the hearts of people exactly who He wanted to go . . . and they ended up being exactly who was needed to minister; during, as at every turn our plans were thwarted but better plans took there place; and after because the LORD has now set our fellowship in a direction that continues to bless and encourage our body at CCSpotsy!

My personal thoughts about this trip are that as we went through all of the detours and each time that we thought that something was wrong, it showed that God’s plan is something greater than we could have imaged. (Even though we already knew that). And when we think that things are not going right we need to remember we will be okay because we are in God’s hands. Sandra
This mission trip for me was a blessing. I got to see how much the people in Cajabamba love God and how they thirst to know Him even more. The people down there are so kind and you can see God’s love radiating in them. It was a little difficult being stared at while down there because it is not something that I am used to. While there, we had many detours, from people getting sick to last minute changes in the schedule. God provided during this trip and showed us that He has a greater plan for us. Ellyn
