FREE MISSION TRIP RESOURCES IN SPANISH
This page is meant to be used by anyone needing some basic materials in Spanish for mission trips. We will continue adding new material regularly.

Of course, if your Spanish is pretty good, you can go into the Spanish site and get lots of other great stuff!
Mission Trip Tips:
- Spend time with God every day and enjoy a personal, intimate relationship with Him. Make this your first priority.
- Get your eyes off the opposite sex and focus on the Lord.
- Purpose in your heart to be sensitive to how you can serve the people around you. Don’t go expecting that everyone serve you.
- Go with a desire to learn all that you can from the people where you are going. DO NOT think that you are somehow superior because you are from the United States.
- Show respect for everyone. Do not be loud and obnoxious.
- Obey carefully the instructions of your leaders, or you may very well jeopardize your safety and the safety of others.
- Avoid carrying a wallet in your pocket or using a traditional purse. Use special travel wallets that are worn inside your clothing.
- Wear modest clothing. You are a personal ambassador of Jesus Christ.
- Enjoy all the experiences that God gives you!
