On a mission trip, there will be plenty of opportunity to make memories and experience awesome moments. Here are a few tips on how to make the most of your time at MSC.
Cut out technology
One of the best ways to fully experience your trip is to cut out any distractions that come with your phone. Challenge yourself to turn it off for the week! Doing this will allow you to devote your full attention to the people and things around you.
Take photos, but don’t miss the moment
Photos are a great way to keep moments alive forever, but don’t get too wrapped up in trying to take the perfect photo! Take time to experience your surroundings and interactions without a camera.
Talk to everyone!
The residents and staff of MSC are all amazing individuals who each have stories and experiences to share. Take time during your trip to sit down with people and get to know them. This creates bonds that will last you long after your trip is over.
Step out of your comfort zone
A mission trip is a great time to try new things! Immerse yourself in the culture of the country you are staying in by trying new foods, listening to new music, and talking to new people.
