MAT 144 Mission Project Part A
Use the following resource to assist you in completing Part A of your Mission Trip assignment.
Imagine that you are planning to conduct a mission trip in 5 years. You should select a specific mission for this project to provide some kind of humanitarian aid to the target population. Many people choose to include evangelism as a part of their mission, though the main goal must be humanitarian. The mission goal may include providing education, medical assistance, clean water, food, or aid.
To keep your mission reasonable, in scale and goal, design your mission to include yourself and 5 – 10 other participants and to be 2 – 4 weeks in duration. Because the mission group is small and the duration is not long, consider goals that can reasonably be accomplished within the allotted time. Choose a small target population for your mission. For example, if you want to bring medicine to two small villages in Peru, the villagers are your target population. It is not reasonable to try to bring medicine to the entire population of Peru with a small group of missionaries on a month long trip.
Choose three countries from the Country Data Spreadsheet provided in the Course Materials that you would consider going to for your mission trip. Research each country using The World Fact book found on the Central Intelligence Agency website at.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/”>https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/, other resources such as the U.S. Department of State website at.state.gov/content/travel/english.html”>http://travel.state.gov/content/travel/english.html, and the GCU Library. Consider economic reasons for choosing these countries, and safety concerns that may be relevant to these countries and your mission goals. Remember that you would not go alone on this trip and you are responsible for the safety of the other participants, in addition to your own.
