In this episode we discuss missions trips. We talk about the history of missions, some of the more famous missionaries, we discuss how the short term missions evolved.
We also talk about the harm they cause to local economies, the dangers of the white saviour complex, why your missions trip instagram photos are problematic, and other things that are harmful about it.
As always we are not experts, we just google this stuff.
