I recently came back from the country of Panama. This is my 4th trip to a South or Central American country and every time I get back I feel so many weird feelings. Here are my top ten weirdest feelings after coming back from a mission trip.
Walking past kids and feeling you should make them a balloon animal.
Walking past kids and wondering why they’re not excited to see you. I brought balloons!!
Tempted to say hola’ , adios, buenos días, and gracias to EVERYONE
Wondering if it’s ok to drink my own water.
Driving myself everywhere.
Why are cars driving so far away from me? I loved being able to reach out and shake hands with fellow drivers.
Trying to figure out how to order my food in English without making hand gestures.
Wondering what I am doing every day. Where’s my schedule?
Constantly checking my back pocket to see if I have my passport.
Wondering where my other 50 friends went to. #missionposse
Mission trips are fun, exhausting, exhilarating, and God filled, but watch out when you get home, its weird.
