Among the workshop leaders this year is Christian Author and Speaker Lena Wood. She is no stranger to teaching and sharing the Word of God with others. She loves the Lord, her family, traveling, hiking, and her church and has experienced many adventures as she has traveled to such places as Japan, Ireland, China, South Africa, and Egypt while on missions trips and when doing research for her books.
Lena is passionate about Missions and “Storming the Gates of Hell” and taking this world for Jesus Christ. She is the author of the Elijah Creek & The Armor of God fiction series and three mission devotional journals for short-termers: Called, Challenged, Changed, and Stage it Right. She is currently working on a sequel to the Elijah Creek series.
Her conference workshop topics this year are “Tween Fiction That’s Real” and “Dialogue: How to Talk Like Someone Else.”
Do you have an upcoming short term missions trip? Lena’s Mission Trip Devotionals are key. They are riveting, insightful and powerful. As you spend time in the Lord’s presence and browse the pages of Called, you will be able to reflect and prepare for your upcoming journey and allow your heart and mind to settle on this new experience as you head out on what might be your first missions trip.
We all know that any time we are doing something for God there will be challenges. Wood’s Challenged will give you first hand accounts from those who were in the trenches, You will be uplifted and encouraged to continue on because, at the end of it all, God will get the glory.
So now that you’ve been going full steam ahead and have completed your task and your mission trip is over—its time to return to the real world. At this stage you can reflect on the experience, and Changed will be your companion for re-entry into your world and your life back home.
