Say Yes! to an International Mission Trip
Thinking about going on an international mission trip? You should; and here's why.
When you step off the plane, you might feel like you've landed in a different world. Your surroundings are foreign, the smells are unfamiliar, the way people look and dress is different from the people back home. You may not understand the language, and the daily routines and activities, jobs and schools might be very different from what you're used to.
But after a few days, you will begin to adjust to & appreciate this new place. A small child might wipe the sweat from your face as you play together in the hot Haitian sun. You will hold the hand of someone who is sick and realize that communication surpasses language with a touch, a look, or a smile. Loving people suddenly feels a whole lot easier as you begin to really see others for all their beauty and worth, the same way Jesus sees you. You can only learn so much about a culture from textbooks, your favorite search engine, or secondhand from a friend. Sometimes you have to step out and go, not only to learn about others, but to learn about yourself. And in that new place you will encounter Jesus in ways you never have before. While holding that precious but malnourished baby, or singing songs of praise on a rooftop thousands of miles from home, or basking in the joy of a beautiful moment with a stranger, your heart will be forever changed. Join us.
Due to increased security concerns in Haiti, Mission Youth has suspended all mission trips to Haiti for 2018. We remain committed to our Haitian brothers and sisters and will keep them in our prayers and continue our support this year.
What if I've already registered for a Haiti trip
We have opened up a new mission trip to Nicaragua for all our Haiti missionaries who still want to give.*
*Any application fees you've already paid will count towards your Nicaragua mission. If you can't make it to Nicaragua, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a full refund.
Missions in Nicaragua serve to bring Christ to the community of Chinandega, the country's fifth largest city on the beautiful western Pacific Coast. While no two missions are the same, our missionaries will participate in both humanitarian projects and spiritual evangelization work. Humanitarian projects may include construction & repair of local schools and parishes. Missionaries will meet the spiritual needs of the community by organizing a summer camp for hundreds of children, interacting with the boys & girls at the local orphanages, and sharing Christ's love with those at a home for the physically handicapped.
Mexico missions reach out to the communities in Mexico that face great needs. Our missions are essentially a pilgrimage where you will be "roughing it" with friends and stepping outside yourself to be a missionary of Christ. Your mission work will serve both the spiritual and physical needs of the people you encounter. Humanitarian projects in Ahuazotepec, Puebla include constructing homes or churches, laying floors, and fixing roofs. Spiritual evangelization work includes opportunities to interact with the townspeople by hosting kid’s camps, giving spiritual talks, leading sports activities and organizing liturgical celebrations.
