A Restoration Journey is not a mission trip in the sense that outsiders come in to help and save others in poor neighborhoods. Instead your experience is about recognizing that the privilege of some and the poverty of others are connected to each other through complex histories and injustices.

We unpack that complexity so that we can better understand one another and reveal the poverty (spiritual, relational, etc.) and gifts in each one of us. A Restoration Journey, then, is as much a camp or a training center for formation, as it is a mission trip because we approach as learners rather than teachers.

It’s from this place of recognizing our mutual brokenness that we can truly help one another. Waiting in line becomes a chance to share Jesus. Sitting through traffic becomes a quiet time. Listening to people share their story becomes a chance to encourage one another and learn a new culture and grow relationally.
