I hope you found this to be informative in making the decision if this mission trip is something you definitely would like to attend. Reminder that it is a mission’s trip and not a vacation, so being comfortable or getting a good night sleep may not always be the case, but it is a great experience and you will enjoy it. Again, thank you for your interest and we hope to hear from you soon.
