Abel, our older son, when he was 17 years old, he came to me and asked: “Mom, may I go to a mission trip right after school ends?”
He was 11th grade. I said, “Sure. Where are you thinking of going? For how many days and how much is it going to be?”
Usually my kids come to me with a flyer when they want to go to a summer camp and this was the first time I heard about mission trip.
