Pre Trip Testimonies
I think that this trip is going to be different than the Jamaica trip, it’s going to be more challenging and mentally harder. I’m excited to see what God has in store for me. My fears are that I will get cranky and not put God first. I want God to help me get rid of my shyness/feel like I’m making a difference in others lives.
I’m scared about flying for the first time. I am also scared about not having a life-changing experience because I want to be a different person when I come back.
I am excited to completely devote my time on this trip for God to use me as He wills. I know God can do anything through me and that He will teach me many new things. I am not afraid because God is always watching over me.
I don’t have any fears at all going overseas because things will work out. Whatever God wants me to do I will do whether it is through music or anything else.
I am very excited to see what God will teach me through this opportunity and I am excited to see how God will use me over seas. I am fearful that my body will not be prepared for the humidity and altitude.
I am super excited! I know God is calling me to go! I do not want to but I will obviously obey His calling. I am a little afraid of leaving my young children and husband but I am excited to serve Jesus in another place outside of my comfort zone with my two oldest daughters and many of my friends. God has connected my spirit with some of the ladies in the Philippines and I can’t wait to meet them.
I am scared of the ocean and planes. I am excited to get close with my team and the people we are helping. I’m anticipating to overcome my fears and I don’t think it will be easy.
I’m excited about why God is taking us halfway around the world. We get to do something unbelievable for people that need help.
I am excited about working with the kids and being able to learn or teach. I fear for my depression and anxiety and having such feelings so far away from home.
I’m excited to share my first out of country trip with some of my closest friends in Christ. I am most excited to hear the children at Bethany’s stories and hear them spill about what Jesus has done for them. I can’t wait to get to work!
I’m excited to watch and experience God bring joy to our team and the people we are going to help even though we might feel miserable from the Jet-lag and the time change. I can’t wait to see what God work in the lives of our team and everyone we encounter on our trip.
I am thrilled to be a part of this team. I am excited to see God work through our team as a whole and also through myself. Honestly, my biggest fear is the financial aspect of it all. Even though that is probably so small compared to the amazing things He is going to do!
I want God to open my eyes to the world of need, to truly see love and dependents on God. I want my faith to be strengthened and reminded of the power of God. I fear failure and snakes.
I am concerned that I won’t know what to do! Which also makes me a blank slate and feel confident that I’m open to anything. I have to constantly remind myself that this is what God wants me to do.
I am excited to see what God does in and through our team. I want to be fully surrendered to His will and His direction. I am also excited to grow closer as a team with God as our center. He is going to do awesome heart changing things in this mission. He already has.
I am excited to see all the kids and have a connection with them and to strengthen my faith with the experience of this trip.
I am excited to meet all of the kids in the orphanages and the only thing I am worried about is the plane ride. I want God to use me to make a difference there and to better my relationship with him.
I’m excited to go and help people that need help. Also to go to the school and see how it is.
I’m excited for the new adventure to a new place but afraid of not knowing what to do and when to do it. I am excited for the people.
On this trip I feel like God is going to change my life! Our team is going to become so strong and together. I’m excited to go see everyone down there and put my abilities to use for God.
I am afraid to leave my family and go halfway across the world. I’m excited to see what plan God has for me but anxious as to whether I possess the knowledge to fulfill His plan. I want God to grow me into a more faithful servant by witnessing first-hand accounts of an underprivileged country.
I am excited to meet the Bethany leaders and all the awesome kids. Also to experience their way of life, worship, service, and love for God. I fear the unknown surroundings, the long travel time and safety. I am wanting God to use me in any way He sees fit. I’m planning to work with VBS and just love on all those beautiful children. I am hoping to grow closer to the Lord personally and experience a way of serving unlike I ever have before.
I am so excited to see this team get so unified that we grow in our faith, we grow in our relationships around our faith. Most importantly, I am willing to do whatever God wants me to do to help make this trip the best that it can be. I am His and I will STAND!
I am really excited to sharpen my ability to listen to God. Lately He has been teaching me to be still and witness His plan unfold. I’ve been so caught up in worry for the future.
I am excited to witness to people about what God has done through me. I can’t wait to get close to my team...I just want God to do something big through us!
I’m excited for just about everything on this trip. I am excited to see what God has in store. I am also nervous because I have never been on a trip before. I am wanting God to move me like I’ve never been before and show me His purposes for bringing me this opportunity along with all my teammates. I am excited also to become close to everyone else going.
I’m excited to see this country and be exposed to life there. The long plane ride is what I’m fearing because I’m bad with planes and then I don’t want jet-lag to get in the way of the trip. I already know God is going to show me things and strengthen me through this trip.
I’m looking forward to helping in the agriculture part of the mission. My fear is being in a group, because I work alone in my job most of the time, but when needed I can organize a group.
I am beyond excited for this trip to the Philippines. I'm looking forward to the new adventure I'm going to take with many wonderful people God put on the team. I am also ready for God to rock my heart in new & exciting ways!
