I am considering going on a missions trip this summer to an orphanage in Mexico with some of my siblings. I am 15. I have felt since I was about 8 years old that God wanted me someplace in missions, especially with children. I have never been on a missions trip, and this seems like a great opportunity. However, I am torn as to whether I should leave or not because my mom depends on me so much to help out with the family and at home (we have a big family). She will especially need me this summer because she will have a 5 month old baby. But on the other hand, there are children and ministries in Mexico that really need my help, more than my mother does. My mother is a former MK and is supportive of me going on a missions trip someday because she knows that is my passion, but I don’t know if this is the right time to go because of all times, this is when she will need me the most! Help! I think if I ask her, she will say yes and just “silently suffer” without me if you know what I mean. How do I make sure I am not neglecting her and my responsibilities toward her and still follow God’s calling for my life? Oh and FYI, if I do not go this summer, I will not be able to go until Summer 2014. Thank you!
