Visiting Orphans is an amazing ministry that organizes short term mission trips to visit and serve various ministries all over the world. I am a Visiting Orphans Leader and lead two teams a year!
Short term missions are so important. They not only give support to long term missionaries, but they are a platform for much more. I believe the most important role of short term missions is that the team becomes a billboard for the ministries on the ground. These trips are only the beginning!
On one of my teams, you can expect to be the hands and feet of Jesus! We love and we serve! That pretty much sums it up in simple terms. You may be holding a child, or 4, all day long. You could be working in a clinic treating a variety of injuries and illnesses. You could be teaching in a classroom of 50 children. Or you may be going to market, cutting up "meat" and preparing a feast for 500 people. We spend time in daily worship and devotionals as a team, and end up becoming a family!
