Short-term missions became a phrase in my vocabulary at a very young age. Having grown up on the mission field, I could not tell you how many short term participants I have seen roll through Cambodia. However, what I could tell you, is that there is a significant change in the local church and mission field because of them. A positive change. The change that can be seen in the local church, the congregation, the leaders, the youth, and the children. The change that can also be seen in the International workers themselves.
When I stumbled onto the Envision Summit website a few months ago, I immediately had a sense that I needed to go. Maybe it was the speaker line-up, maybe it was the topics that would be discussed, or maybe it was even the location, but I knew that I had to be involved.
