As I’ve been having conversations with people about some opportunities our church has in relation to global mission trips, I’m often asked what specifically we would be doing. While everyone who has been on a mission trip knows that the most important beatitude for missionaries is “Blessed are the flexible,” that doesn’t help ease the anxiety of potential participants!
Holy Week is an important time for the Church, and Vineyards across the globe spend time remembering Jesus’ last days on this earth. Good Friday reminds us of the death of Jesus, a central aspect of the message of the gospel (1 Cor. 15:1-6). This is one of the most important messages we who engage in missions can share with the world around us. Why? Because the death of Jesus is how God communicated his deep love for people (Rom. 5:8).
