Use these questions to prompt discussions for reflection and personal growth on a mission trip. So much happens in such a short time that it’s important to process the experience. With 25 cards to start a discussion, divide your large group into smaller groups and have participants share their responses after one person draws the question from the deck on behalf of the whole group. You can report back to the larger group or move on to another question.
For groups that form before the actual short-term mission trip, use the additional 15 questions for BEFORE a project, and later draw on the 12 questions for AFTER a project.
While Maranatha Volunteers International created these questions, all short-term mission groups can benefit by fostering spiritual growth through reflection and discussion of the current impact of the participants’ various experiences.
