Why Does BTJ Do Vision Trips and Why Should You Join?

Perspective is everything!

Have you ever thought about the color of a seemingly simple black cup with a white lid, only to discover a big blue label when you turn it around? It’s interesting how our perspective can change our perception. Some might initially see it as black and white, but with a different angle, you will see it as a mix of white, black, and blue.

It just goes to show that sometimes, all we need is to look at things from a different angle to discover new dimensions. That’s why Back to Jerusalem does vision trips. Often, we tend to stay hidden in our homes or within our own cave. But Jesus calls us to embrace the beauty of diverse perspectives, as they enable us to see the world in a whole new light.

But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!” Romans 10:14-15

During our recent Vision trip, we noticed a bunch of folks who said they didn’t really have a reason for showing up, other than they felt it was what God wanted. We’ve seen this time and again with those who join us on our vision trips to Iraq, Tibet, Cambodia and Vietnam. And honestly, that’s how we should be driven in everything we do. But often, fear can get the best of us. We need to channel our inner Peter and say to the Lord, “If it’s really you, ask me to walk over to you on the water.”

Let’s be prepared to go, pray for, learn from, and send those who have beautiful feet.

I am a Messianic Jewish believer that felt the tug of the L-rd towards the unreached. I decided I would go to China. My love for the Chinese people grew while I was there, but when I learned of the Back to Jerusalem movement, I knew the L-rd wanted me to be proclaiming His gospel message to the unreached people between China and Jerusalem. Let’s unite and complete the great commission. We need to accept the challenge Jesus has given us so that we can feel the exhilaration of victory.
