When you imagine a mission trip, you think Haiti, you think Mother Teresa, you think curing diseases. One college student was surprised to learn during one of their classmate's presentations that the "impoverished" place she attended on her church's mission trip was... their hometown.
They laughed at the time, but are now asking the internet:
I'm in college and I'm in a public speaking gen-ed class. For an assignment recently, we were each expected to do a presentation on a life event that was meaningful to us.
This girl presented on her church group mission trip to a "impoverished" area and how it showed her how people live with so little but are happy and how it's important to think of the needy and live in service of others.
