My Name: Rob Richards & my wonderful wife Sheril
We are very excited about this Trip
We so appreciate each one of you for being here today. You probably have more fun and exciting things to do than attend a missionary meeting. Instead, you have given priority to learning more about what God is doing around the world.
The fact that you care that much makes you very important to us. Thank you so much for coming.
We will be spending most of our trip here
An Open Mind
Called (the Anticipation)
This is the Pre-field preparation
1 Chronicles 4:10 "'Oh, that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that your hand would be with me, and that you would keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me!' So God granted him what he requested."
This is our team anticipating things like the following:
Who are the people we will be impacting?
What will the service projects, teaching time, and worship be like?
How will you get along with the other members of the team?
What does God have in store for you to learn?
How will God use you to make a difference?
This is the on-field experience.
2 Corinthians 3:4-5 "And such confidence we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God."

What has been unexpected so far?
How has God been working today?
In what ways has he captured your attention today? (Reliant on Him not your talents, brains, etc..)
How are you being conformed to the likeness of Christ?
Changed (the reflection)
This is the Post-field time of reflection
Philippians 1:3–6 "I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all, in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now. For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus."
How have you processed all you have learned from our trip?
Will our trip impact the rest of your life? How?
How did it feel to get your hands dirty?
What was it like to meet people that live and have less then you?
How did it feel to serve others while you gained nothing?
Describe a moment when God/Holy Spirit was making your heart and blood pump as He provided just the right words for you as you were sharing Jesus with someone you just met?
How has God transformed you?
What has God started in you? (rev.4:8) (eph 2:10)
Now what? How is God going to use you to make a
