Archives For Boost Mission Trips

Today marks our final day of active outreach for the team before we take the day on Monday to debrief our trip. It’s been day after day of new and intense experiences.

Just to recap a few of the things we’ve done: we visited two different refugee camps in the area, bringing relief supplies and spending time building relationships. We helped put on a language learning club for adults, and another one for kids. We shared our faith with local students, one on one, in some nearby neighborhoods. We helped out at a church with some service projects. We have done a mountain of praying for any and every reason we can think of. And we have listened to the stories and journeys of the long term ministry leaders who have been faithfully laboring here for years.

Today we are splitting up and are off to three different churches. Later, we’ll head back out to the streets to share the gospel with the local youth, and that will conclude our outreach for this trip. Tomorrow we turn our hearts toward home, and begin to process what these experiences mean for us, and how move forward in our lives with new perspective.

We’d love for you to be praying for our time out on the streets this afternoon. Pray especially for courage and boldness. Please also pray for our day of debriefing, that the Lord, would lay on our hearts the lessons He wants us to take away from this experience.

Thank you again for praying us through this trip. To our families, see you Tuesday!

Ministry in France!

Wow, what an exciting couple days of ministry!

We hit the ground running here in France, starting day one off with some orientation and then joining two local adult English clubs. Our students immediately jumped into building relationships, striking up conversations and learning about the lives of the local French people, many of whom are Muslim believers. The conversations have been rich and welcoming, and our hosts are thrilled with the possibilities it’s opening up.

It took some time and scrambling, but we managed to get unlimited transportation passes on the buses and trains for everyone in the group. It has really made the entire city of Toulouse easily accessible to us.

Yesterday we spent time at a refugee camp in town. The conditions were rough, and the language barrier was stark. Nevertheless, that quickly became a high priority for our team, and they are eager to get back there and dig deeper into the lives and those they’ve quickly made friends with.

We’ve also did some prayer walking, spent time with our missionary hosts, explored a North African open air market, and kicked jet lag. It has been a productive couple days.

We’d love for you to be praying for us as we try out some evangelism approaches in new areas today, and later take on an after school English tutoring with kids and youth.

Merci to all who are holding us up in prayer!

“The SBS Boost Mission Trip has arrived in France. We are hanging out in a park enjoying a beautiful day!”
– Margaret Fischer

“The Stony Brook School France team has arrived in Toulouse. We had to hang out in a near by park before we could gain access to the apartment we are staying it, but it turned out to be welcome rest on a beautiful warm sunny day. Everyone is feeling the jet lag a bit, and the tiredness that comes with a long travel day, but the team is clearly exited to be here.

Our first prayer request is that we would get a good night’s rest and feel refreshed in the morning, ready to hit the ground running. Thanks to those who have prayed us this far.”

Welcome to the Family, Boost!
We believe that students who are empowered to grow and to serve can have a profound impact in the world to build God’s kingdom. However we realize that the 5-7 week mission trips that we offer through Royal Servants isn’t for everyone. And thus, Boost Mission Trips was born! Boost is a way for us to offer shorter trips for students AND provide a resource to help you build your own trip!

While Royal Servants summer mission trips last between 5 to 7 weeks, Boost Mission Trips offer an opportunity to experience the awesome parts of Royal Servants but in a much shorter time frame (7-14 days). These trips will be available to a large group of students- all you have to do is sign up!

Youth Pastors, Leaders, Teachers etc:
Building a mission trip that takes a group of students to new places and accomplishes effective, responsible ministry can be an enormous task. It demands time, resources, connections, meticulous planning, administrative support, and so much more. We hope to lift the burden of planning and organizing the trip so that you as a leader are free to invest in your students and the ministry at hand. Every trip is customized to fit your group and to make sure your efforts are meeting real needs.

Short-term mission trips are what we do, and Boost Mission Trips is our way of offering that to you. Check it all out here >>
