One of the hardest things for a parent is to see their teens in unsafe or hard situations, yet I’ve found when they step outside of their comfort zone, and are 100% in need of God’s energy to fuel their good ideas, then “faith as a verb” happens.
Four years ago two of my teens traveled to Mexico to build a house for a family. The program is called Homes of Hope. It was a turning point in their faith walk. Maybe you can see way.

Right now is the perfect time to start thinking about a mission trip for Spring Break or the summer. In fact our family has already started planning an August trip to teach at a teen English Camp.
This idea will take ACTS OF FAITH and GOD’S ENERGY to accomplish, but remember:
Question: If you could go on a mission trip with your family…where would you go?? Please comment and let me know!
