I think that's the whole point.

Well I know one friend who went on a mission trip to help educate the some of the young girls and boys about rape because the place they went to had an outrageous amount of rapes happen, and a lot of it had to do with a lack of education about it. Another friend of mine went to help build an orphanage. So they do sometimes go for other reasons. It's just the whole "Canada is the devil country because it has more Walmarts than churches so we must save all of its people" thing that my friend is trying to do. I kind of wish I could go with him just so I could see how to Canadians take it. It'd probably be pretty funny to see. Something tells me converting atheists there won't be any easier than converting atheists here.

Yeah I can see the argument now:
Christian: Good bless friend! Smile
Canadian: I'm not your friend, pal! Angry
Christian: ok, buddy? Blink
Canadian: I'm not your buddy, friend! Angry
(yes I ripped off south park, sue me)

RE: Mission Trips
lol

I remember that one American evangelical church group went to Germany on such a mission to convert Germans.

They built up a massive stage in the middle of the Potsdamer square in Berlin after announcing their event nationwide.

Indeed thousands came to listen to what this group had to show on their stage.

But 20 minutes into it, the man who lead that mission screamed into the crowd:

"If Hitler managed to gather so many people in the name of naziism, then we can gather twice as many in the name of Jesus"

The crowd just fell appart and everyone went home. The mission failed since nobody wanted to have anything to do with them anymore.

I know an South African who went on a mission trip to Belgium. Absurd. I think she really just went for the chocolates.

The whole point of "missions" is to spread the [s]disease[/i] religion.

Everything else is incidental.
