Mission trip devotions

Devotions are an important part of mission trips. Starting each morning with devotion and ending each evening with discussion helps build community as well as gives the youth a place to feel safe to talk about their feelings. Here are some devotions and discussion that you can use. This calls for "coed group discussion". Ideally, if you have more than 10 youth, you should break off into smaller groups so more people get a chance to share.  Coed groups can be anywhere from 5 to 8 youth and at least one leader. For groups less than 10, you can have one big group discussion.
