Hi, I'm David Bond! I've loved mission trips my whole life. Now, I'm fundraising to go on a 6 month mission trip with Youth With a Mission! Feel free to learn more about me and my trip here. Thanks for your support!
I went on my first mission trip when I was 10 years old, and since then I've been absolutely in love.
The sense of community and purpose I felt while I was on these trips was unbelievable. I had the opportunity to grow and challenge myself by doing the lord's work. And I was getting to travel to locations God needed me with other passionate christians with similar goals and mindsets.
To me, the whole school year was just like a waiting time before the summer when I could go off with my church or friends on these adventures.
Below is a picture of me at christian Overcomers. I think I'm 13 in the picture, but I'm not sure haha. Christian Overcomers is a ministry where you take care of someone with a disability (called a "camper") and give them a fun camp-like experience. Here I am sitting next to my camper, Bobby:
And an even younger picture of me at Christian Overcomers. I don't even know how young I am in this picture. Maybe like negative 5 years old:
The picture pains me to look at haha. But in the same way it also holds a special place in my heart, because it reminds how long and how significant of an impact going to Christian Overcomers had on me. I can honestly say I would not be the same person if it weren't for all the wonderful people there.
