This summer, I had the honor of working with Lighthouse Inc. in Cleveland for my first ever mission trip. It was definitely worth the 5 hour drive from KY, for it was a great opportunity to help build God`s kingdom and allow me to view the world in a different perspective. I absolutely enjoyed every second of it and knowing that I was helping to make a difference felt great. Even if I could not see the change while I was there, I know the people I worked with and myself planted a seed that will someday take root. I think Lighthouse is doing a great thing; not for themselves, but for others around them that need to know God`s love. Personally, I believe that Heaventrain is a genious idea. Kudos to whoever came up with that! Just seeing all those kids come rushing up to us, anticipating those 15 minutes on the Heaventrain bus was great. Also, hearing all the children singing "Heaven is a wonderful place, filled with love and grace..."was truly amazing. One thing that Lighthouse Inc. really shows, is the fact that you don`t have to go across the world to tell people about Jesus and be His hands and feet; rather, you only have to look in your own town to see that there is work to be done. I really hope my youth group and I are able to come back next summer and continue to work as God`s servants.
