"In November, God laid it on my heart to go on a short-term mission trip. So I Googled just that and found your website. I had no idea where or what God was calling me to specifically, so I used your search engine and said "1 to 2 months" and that was it! It was amazing going through all the options. I made a list and circled a few that really stuck out to me. I spent two weeks praying hardcore about it and told my two best friends.
"We all ended up going on EuroQuest this summer. It was the hardest but most amazing summer of my life. Traveling Europe, I learned to share my faith. God gave me a heart for evangelism and the tools to share his truth. My two best friends and I were changed. I hadn't heard about Reign Ministries at all before finding your website. God totally changed my heart and life through that mission trip.
"I'm so thankful for this website! I recently spoke at my youth group and shared about ShortTermMissions.com. I've encouraged many people to come take advantage of this awesome website. It is such a ministry and a tool God uses to get people where they need to be. I don't know if I would be where I am if God had not led me here, and your info leading me there!"
"It had been six months since my short-term to Kenya through my church. I was so blessed by my time there that I was ready to move forward with missions in mind. What was next? All I could think of was another trip, a longer one this time. Not knowing where to begin I went to the web and put 'short term missions' into my browser. [ShortTermMissions.com] showed up and right then my life was changed. After plugging in a little info on what I was looking for I found OMF International. I did end up going on two Serve Asia trips with them that next summer. I spent three months overseas which was exactly what I wanted. As a result of my relationship with OMF I wound up joining their mobilization efforts and moved to Denver to work out of their home office.
"I praise God for his grace, his hand over my life and all the events that I have mentioned. I always mention you as part of my faith journey. I highly recommend you to all my friends."

"I help American Christ-followers find the next step in their pursuit to be a part of the Great Commission. Normally people come to me with a clear idea and particular questions about Operation Mobilization and how they can get involved. If the questions are of a broader scope, though, I refer them always to AskaMissionary.com. I like this resource because general missions questions are posed, but the answers are not cookie-cut. The answers given by real missionaries (which is a selling point) who look at it from a different angle. This helps people to get a grasp of what missions is and how they might fit in."
~ Edgar, Operation Mobilization
