What’s Your Story: A Mission Journal


God’s story mixes with our stories to produce a new story. To help your mission team tell the story of your short-term mission experience, you receive 7 days of guided devotions leading up to the departure day, 10 days of writing space while you serve at the mission site, and 7 days of guided reflection after back home. What’s Your Story? is a great 24-day companion for short- term mission teams and is currently being used by World Servants, Experience Mission, Adventures in Mission and a growing number of other mission organizations. It is age appropriate for youth through adult.
