If you’re going on a mission trip this summer, I’d love for you to share your experiences with the world!
The “iGO do You?” initiative is an awesome way to tell others your mission story. It’s easy and only takes a minute to tell where you went, what you witnessed God do, and what you personally experienced. Telling others about your “iGO” experience is a way to be His witness following your return from the mission trip.
We created “iGo do You?” a special Facebook group where you can post pictures, videos and more about your mission trip experience.* You can also check out other group members’ posts and iGO videos.
You’ll find lots of encouragement, prayer support and more. It’s fun to see where others are going and what God is doing through people just like you. And who knows… maybe you’ll find inspiration for your next mission adventure!
Find the group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/iGOdoYou/.
You can also tweet your experiences on Twitter using the hashtag #iGOdoYou.

Should you go?
Going as a witness to our community, state, nation and world, is not an option, it is a mandate given to us by Christ himself.
Matthew 28:19-20 says that we should go into all the world and make disciples. Acts 1:8 tells us that after receiving power, we will be His witnesses everywhere we go. Given these and other scriptures that tell us to proclaim His name among the nations, going as a witness is something expected of Christ followers. It is not an option.
We don’t need to wonder IF we should go because the Great Commission is very clear that we are to GO. The only question we should ask is where. God has gifted and equipped every follower to serve as His witness and opportunities are everywhere.
Telling your “go story” will encourage others to go and the witness of Christ will be magnified.
Happy to report that Polly Ann Baptist Church in Lincoln Co. KY has 8 church members participating this week 6/15 – 6/21 in mission efforts along side Baptist Church Builders of Texas to help rebuild Celeste Road Baptist Church in Sarahland Al. Celeste Road Baptist Church was destroyed in a fire in the fall of 2013 and the congregation have been meeting in a double wide mobile home. The size of the new structure will be a little larger than 10,000 sq ft.
