Have you ever wondered how worthwhile short term missions trips are?  They can cost large amounts of time, money, energy and can be very challenging to our personal comfort-levels!

This week we received word that Mark Bentz, who went with Family Life Church to the Philippines for his very first missions trip a few years ago, is leaving in July 2009, along with his wife, Linda, to serve as missionaries to Kenya for two years!

While in Kenya Mark will be using his professional teaching degree and Linda, who is an RN, will be using her newly gained midwifery skills.
