What’s Your GPS? Globally Positioned To Serve: A Mission Journal


Do you want to be Globally Positioned to Serve? Short-term mission trips can teach a lot about GPS. In order to find your way through the ups and downs of a mission trip – the new situations, climates, cultures, and relationships, you are wise to seek God’s divine direction. The inspiration for this new journal comes from Isaiah 30: Just as the Master kept you alive during the hard times, he’ll keep your teacher alive and present among you. Your teacher will be right there, local and on the job, urging you on whenever you wander left or right: “This is the right road. Walk down this road.” (The Message)
