5 Traits of Great Mission Team Members #5 – Selflessness

Acting in a selfless manor on a mission trip can be challenging. Sometimes giving gets hard and the passion behind your mission can wear thin. It’s in times like these that conflict and even safety accidents can occur. Here are three things you can do to help keep yourself centered on selflessness during your mission trip.

1. Know your limits

Everybody has limits and those can oftentimes be challenged on a mission trip. To avoid that burned out feeling, you can:

  • Take into considering the amount of sleep you’re getting.
  • Schedule time for personal activities that rejuvenate you such as a long walk or run, journaling, or reading your bible.
  • Spend 10 – 15 minutes every day focusing on your reasons for embarking on a mission trip. Why has God led you here? What are you learning about yourself, others, and His kingdom?

2. Get inspired

Take some time to connect with the people you’re serving. Knowing their names and their stories will help to inspire you and remind you of why you chose to give up your time and energy to serve.

3. Encourage others

Before your trip even starts, choose to be a team member that helps to encourage others and works to keep a positive environment. Take it upon yourself to set a tone of positivity in all that you do.
