Going into the mission trip to Houston, there were many things to take into account. We had never gone on this trip before, never met these people before, had no idea what their interests were, we didn’t know how many people would show up and above all, we were working with “refugees.” As anyone who watches the news should know, refugees are a hot topic today in current politics and news. We were working with people that were in the limelight of American politics right now, whether they be in it for good or bad reasons. This alone was a lot to take in and can be very intimidating for some people. Nonetheless, I remained anxious to meet these people and after many talks with our group and lessons from Butch and Nell Green, we as a mission group felt prepared to take on anything that came our way.
