Aquaponics Update from Connect Global June 2019

The Connect Global Team has been investing in Aquaponics since our inception. On our First Official Trip as 'Connect Global' to Cusuna, we built 5 aquaponic systems. We have learned a lot since then, and our friend and partner Jorge Amador has built many more and taught several people his skills as well. We plan to build and facilitate an Aquaponic Training Center in Honduras in 2019.

Mission Trip or Vacation?

Mission Trip or Vacation?

The difference between a mission trip and a vacation

“A mission trip is just a vacation that someone else pays for.” Lots of mission trip critics say this, and they’re right. Sometimes. At first glance mission trips and vacations do look pretty similar. They both involve taking time off from school or work, traveling to a new place, and taking lots of pictures.

However, if you’re really going on a mission trip, there will always be one huge difference. The difference is your purpose.

However, if you're really going on a mission trip, there will always be one huge difference. 

The difference is your purpose.

Self-centered vs. Selfless

The purpose of a vacation is to maximize your own personal enjoyment, relaxation, and pleasure. It's a trip that's all about you. It's self-centered.

On the other hand, the purpose of a mission trip is to maximize the name of Jesus by serving others. It's a trip that's all about others. It's selfless.

When a mission trip turns into a vacation

Can a mission trip turn into a vacation? Yes, if you're not being intentional.

What are your motives and reasons for going? To snap some cool pictures, get to know a cute guy or girl, or travel to an exotic place? If this is where your motives start and end, you're not honestly on a mission trip; you're more on a vacation because you're only focusing on yourself (self-centered).

What's your motivation?

Since we're all naturally self-centered, we need to be intentional about having selfless motives. It's not bad or wrong to take pictures, have fun with your teammates, or enjoy traveling. However, you don't want one of those to be your primary motivations during your trip. Motives turn into actions. So, if taking pictures is your primary motive, it'll be your primary action all throughout your mission trip.


On the other hand, if you're intentional about having motives like serving others, digging wells, or sharing God's love with children, then these will be the motives that turn into actions on your mission trip.

Think about it

Which way is your trip leaning? The mission trip side or the vacation side? The selfless side or the self-centered side?

No trip is perfect, and we all struggle with self-centered motives. However, if we're striving to be better reflections of Jesus, we need to be moving in a selfless direction. Jesus was rarely focused on getting great selfies during His trips.

Supporting The Great Commission In Latin America

Supporting The Great Commission In Latin America

The Connect Global Team operates under the mandate found in Matthew 28:19, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations ". Our purpose is To share the Good News of Jesus around the world and help others do the same. One of the ways we are accomplishing this is by partnering with Pastors around the world who do the work of making disciples in some of the farthest, and most unreached areas in the world. 

Global Pathway in Honduras

Global Pathway in Honduras

What is Global Pathway?

 
God loves to bless the work of the local church when that work includes reaching out to the nations of the earth.
— Dr. Jerry Williamson, President of Go To Nations

 

GLOBAL PATHWAY IS SET OF CHURCH EMPOWERMENT TOOLS THAT WILL LAUNCH THE LOCAL BODY INTO GREATER EFFECTIVENESS IN REACHING GOD'S GLOBAL HARVEST.

We understand the struggles of leading the local church. Pastors and church leaders carry a dream deep within their hearts to see God's call fulfilled in their own lives and in their churches.  Endless hours of work and sacrifice are often given, year after year, in order to see the church progress in true spiritual growth and purpose.  But many times, one area of the church's growth seems to fall short because the pastor does not know exactly how to approach it--namely, the church's global outreach or missions program. Global Pathway is designed to help pastors eliminate the uncertainty of missions and help their churches launch strong missions programs or help create new potential for existing ones.  

Three Core Principles form the foundation for this transformational training:

1. Every Christian is called by God to take personal ownership of the Great Commission.

2. The local church is God's primary instrument to reach the world for Christ, and must be mobilized for this purpose.

3. The local church is the seed bed for all missionaries, and the sending force behind all missionaries.
