One of my favorite parts of working with a variety of organizations is the incredible number of young people I get to meet who give up summer/spring/winter vacations just to serve others in the world they’ve never met before.
I think back to when I was 16, and how different the world is we live in. I wish I could find a way to regain those 15 years and spend them traveling to missions all over the world. but I find some much joy in knowing that the next generation of youth is not ignorant, or apathetic to the real problems in this world. Youth have so much hope. They aren’t scarred with the cynicism or limited by the logistical realities that those of us who work in this area can suffer.
It’s always refreshing and inspiring to see the world through fresh youthful eyes again.
