I want to go back. I want to go back. I never wanted to come home to begin with. Can we just move to Senegal? Pretty please?
Okay, I’ve been on enough short-term mission trips now to have learned something really important: you never get out of the honeymoon phase. You just are not there long enough. A week is not enough time for the food to get old, or the quaint little town to lose its charm, for the cold showers and arbitrary police stops to cease feeling like an adventure. Nearly everything about the short-term trip is exciting when you go in with an open mind, so of course it ends with you not wanting it to end and maybe you even think, “I could do this. I could live here.”
We are missionaries with Engineering Ministries International, based in Colorado Springs, and traveling around the globe to serve.
