In the age of the internet, portable technology, and demand for news in “real time”, unless there are security concerns or you are way out in the sticks, there is really no reason NOT to blog your mission trips. Most areas of the world have an internet cafe (varying in speeds of course) and the people who are praying and supporting your trip want to know what’s going on. In addition, well told blogs and stories can energize your church in the Great Commission by involving more people in giving, praying and going.
This post covers the basics of mission trip blogging. For a full in-depth discussion, I recommend you get a copy of Jim Killam and Lincoln Brunner’s book GO TELL IT: How and Why to Report God’s Stories in Words, Photos, and Videos. This one-of-a-kind handbook gives practical tips on how to “report” on what God is doing around the world.
