WEC Trek is not an event but a process. The following are comments from people who have recently been on a life changing WEC Trek.
Through talking with the church planters there, I now have a much better understanding about how to share the gospel with Muslims.
It’s hard and you need to celebrate the little breakthroughs. However, it placed in my heart the need to do more of this and to appreciate that mission is a way of living, and the role of every Christian.
A significant lesson that I learned was that I need to see the Great Commission as my priority in life.
I now understand the importance of seeing another culture, its difference to New Zealand, and to see where and how God is at work in other cultures.
The funniest moment for me was when a street salesman came up to us and said “Hello, can I rip you off?
A life changing moment for me was to see with my own eyes and up close, people bowing down before a golden statue, an idol, and worshipping it as their god.
The new things I learnt about my God on this trek were that: he provides personally, he protects completely and he gives so much grace.
This trek has had a significant impact on my life. My own cultural values have been challenged. I don’t want to have a superficial or materialistic lifestyle. This has also confirmed to me that I definitely want to be a missionary.
