Vision Trips: Confirming Your Call to Missions (VIDEO)

By Tom Mills, May 3, 2022

Ryan and Katie felt for a long time that they were called to serve overseas. They’re not evangelists or church planters—she’s a doctor and he’s a project manager—but they felt serving internationally would be a way God could use their gifts in a cross-cultural context to further the gospel. They felt one of the best ways to seek confirmation on God’s call was to go on an MTW vision trip, where they would meet people and get to know the area, where they could have boots on the ground. So they went on a vision trip to Central Asia, to the city where they were considering serving. They visited neighborhoods, grocery stores, churches, and met local people. As they hoped, the trip gave Ryan and Katie more insight as they continued to pray and move forward into God’s calling. For Ryan & Katie, their call was confirmed. They feel a connection and a calling.
