Gather as a family to pray and ask God to lead each step and to accomplish His purposes through each step. Commit to watch and pray together as a family.

Consider keeping a family journal of things you “see” as you consider going on a trip.

Commit to pray at each step along the way.

Do some research to find out what organizations and trips might be best for your family.

Contact the organizations/trip leaders to find out more information about the specific trip(s).

Evaluate the viability of the trip that seems best. Consider the time, energy, financial resources, and risk that is involved. Ask together as a family, “Is it worth it?”
