Imagine living in an RV full-time with your family, traveling from one construction site to another. That may sound like a demanding and stressful lifestyle, but for construction missionary workers, it's an exciting and fulfilling way of life. These workers sacrifice much to give care, aid, and support to the needy, all for the love of God. In this post, we'll uncover the a little of the life of construction missionary workers living in RVs full-time and how you can support their cause.
First of all, construction missionary workers are a unique set of people who are called to work with their hands and serve God through building homes, churches, schools, and other community projects. They travel the country and work in all kinds of weather and terrain to bring help to people and organizations in need. Living in an RV full-time may seem daunting, but it allows them to be close to the construction site and to work efficiently. It's a way for these workers to share God's love through practical actions and to let those in need know that they are not alone.
Living in an RV full-time presents many challenges that some may not expect, such as the incessant need to fix things in the RV, sleeping in a confined space with family members, and finding a place to park the RV overnight. Finding an internet signal and where to "dump" is always a challenge too. But these challenges are just a small price to pay in exchange for the fulfillment of doing God's work.
One of the many joys of living in an RV full-time is the sense of community that develops among construction missionary workers. They meet fellow workers on the construction site, where they often stay for an extended period. They establish friendships with the people they serve, who sometimes offer to park the RV on their property or host a potluck dinner for the group. These connections build an extended network of friends, many of whom become lifetime friends.
These friendships develop around a sense of serving God in each one's unique purpose God designed for them. They each become a support system for the others workers' spiritual journey. Without a home church and the family it provides, life on the road as an RV missionary can be lonely, but the support from other RVer's becomes invaluable.
Another advantage of living in an RV full-time is that the workers can take their family on their journey of service. They expose their children to different cultures, languages, and people who are in need. It's a unique educational experience in which the children learn to be compassionate and understand the value of helping others, even when it's not easy. Children often learn sacrifice and service go hand-in-hand.
Lastly, you can support these construction missionary workers by providing them with resources they need. Churches can host these workers or help by lending their parking lots for a night's rest while the missionaries travel across the land from one project to another. RV parks can offer them discounts. As individuals, one can donate financially or offer physical assistance in the construction sites. Missionaries sacrifice much to spread the message of God's love through their work, they truly are the hands and feet of Christ while on the job site. It's essential to support them with time, resources, and prayers.
Living in an RV full-time is not for everybody, but for construction missionary workers, it's both the sacrifice and the joy to complete serving in God's purpose. The lifestyle presents significant challenges, but the payoff is immeasurable. The sense of community, fulfillment, and impact are priceless. Everyone has a role to play in supporting these workers, and whether it's through hosting, donating, prayers or offering assistance, every bit counts. They represent the best of humanity through their dedication and commitment to serve others.
