Ike Nicholson and his wife Shauna, of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Ashland, Ky., visited Jordan in March, hosting a group of 25 Disciples from Kentucky, and they took DisciplesWorld along – literally.

If your Disciples of Christ congregation or group is going on a mission trip or tour this summer, take us with you! Send us a photo of your group with our magazine, and we’ll post it on our blog.

We also want to hear about your experiences. We publish trip stories and reflections on our website under the “Disciples Around the World” and “Hurricane Recovery Stories” categories. This is a great way to tell others how Disciples are learning and serving in Jesus’ name. We also hear, from those who’ve been on mission trips and tours to places such as the Holy Land, that the experiences deepened their faith and that they received more than they gave. So send us your trip stories and photos!
