Short Term Mission Trips: What Do You Think?

Dr. Bill Weber, a former professor of mine at Nebraska Christian College, wrote an article about the impact of Short Term Mission Trips for the Christian Standard. Here is part of what he had to say:
Over the past few decades, short-term missions has been established as a part of the world Christian movement. This is possibly one of the most significant developments of the last two centuries of modern missions. Although the relative value, the positive results, and the problems associated with these short-term activities are still debated, there is no longer a discussion about whether or not short-term trips will continue. They are a fact of life for contemporary missions.

Where did you go?
Was it valuable?
