The article reflects on short-trip missions. The author speculates on Paulo Fiere and Erik Law concepts which she considered as vital tools in short-trip missions. Furthermore, the author shares her experience as translator in a meeting in which she found out that good facilitation is a good approach in eliciting sound insights especially on Christian faith. A history of mission involvement among U.S. churches is also discussed.
