Have you ever gone on or looked into going on a mission trip with your kids? Or sending them on one?
I’m thinking, next summer to go on one. Anyone know of a good organization to look into? I’ve looked on line several times, but there is so much to choose from… And they all seem to say the same things, so I’m looking for a reference, I guess.
It would be a great way to go see another state and teach my kids about helping others.

My children go through our church's youth group. They do ASP -http://asphome.org/ - Appalachia Service Project. ASP is a foundation that goes in and rehabs homes for the extreme poor in the Appalachin mountains in TN, VA, W.VA, and KY.
My children haven't been able to go in a couple of years due to band commitments with school, but church youth groups are a great resource for mission trips. Our youth do ASP and go to Haiti every summer.

I have been on 5 mission trips- 3 stateside and 2 international trips. The stateside trips I went with Constructors for Christ. We helped with building a church's first building or by adding on to their original building. We also did community activities. On the international trips I went with International Mission Board (They have since changed their name). When I went to Ukraine with them, we did community outreach, helping the church members, and doing repairs to the church. When we went to Costa Rica, our focus was community outreach and doing a Vacation Bible School. There are many mission organizations and it really depends on how you want to serve.

I've gone with my church to Mexico. It was truly an experience.
