Mission work planning: Zimbabwe meeting

A few weeks ago, I attended a meeting about my adventure to Zimbabwe. It was quite intense as there was so much information but it just got me more passionate about this trip, the people I will be working with as well as the experiences I will encounter.

The purpose of the meeting was to get to know the people that are going on the mission (I knew most of them but not close to any of them) and the arrangement and information for the trip. The mission trip is going to consist of 11 people, ranging in ages, genders, interests and skills.

The agenda involved:
1. Travel arrangements – our flights, travelling to Heathrow, baggage, travel insurance and travel in Zimbabwe
2. Boarding and lodging – where we were staying, rooming and food arrangements
3. Money matters – the cost of the trip and what it covered plus any spending money
4. Medical matters – immunisation, medication to take, temperature and clothing
5. Mission activities – information and proposed courses, working with school, spiritual activities, practical work and repairs, working with children and youth, out in the community
6. Possible excursions
7. Items to take – food, clothing, gifts, laptops, cameras
8. Fundraising ideas
9. Further preparations – design of courses and certificates, training for prayer ministry, children activities and evangelistic outreach

I know that there are going to be many challenges out there (including lots of mosquito bites), but I also know that God will be there beside me, and I know that I want to challenge myself to do things that I may not feel comfortable with or have not done before. I was to become stronger in Christ, rely on him more in every situation and have faith to believe unexpected miracles.
