Short Term Mission Trips - Blessings in Disguise

Breakout Session
Faith Hall 353

Why do health care providers give away their time and skills, traveling long distances to foreign cultures at their own expense, to help treat the needy? Anyone who has gone on a short term mission trip could supply multiple reasons, many of which can have a profound effect on our attitudes towards life when we get back home. This session will consider some of the more and less obvious benefits of short term dental mission trips, with a special emphasis on the unique perspective of student involvement.
