Here is why I know I am a youth pastor. The first time I ever fly over the Atlantic, the first time I ever go to a different continent, I take a group of people with me.
Lots of things are happening for this trip, and I know that we are going to be living out the mission of Jesus while we are there, but right now my biggest thought is weight and baggage. Seriously, I sit here and imagine places to stick stuff, ways to make things weigh less, even to the point of trying to get all of the air out of everything because air has weight.
And of course we have a great church who loves to bring stuff so we are still getting little things to take with me which is amazing, but it also means one less shirt that I get to take for myself.
Just to catch you up on the particulars we will be going to Ethiopia next week. We will be working with a medical mission team to provide basic medical care for the people who live there and specifically the orphans who are part of Project 61.
