2020 Missions Applications Now Open!
COVID-19 and FOCUS Missions: March 2021
As we look forward to the upcoming mission seasons, we recognize the increased needs in our communities during the continued challenge of COVID-19. Now more than ever, we are called to serve the physical and spiritual needs of the poor, and to do so in a way that upholds the safety and health of our communities. The need is greater than ever, and the invitation from our Lord to serve the poor is just as pressing as it has always been.
The priority of FOCUS Missions is always the safety of our participants, staff, and the people we serve on mission. With the safety and health measures we have put into practice over the past eleven months, FOCUS Missions has successfully completed multiple mission trips this academic year with healthy and safe outcomes for every one involved. We are continuing to use these effective practices for mission in the spring and summer, always urging our participants to act in safe and responsible ways.
FOCUS takes into account many factors when deciding whether to serve in a specific location, and FOCUS Missions continues to closely monitor every mission site and operate within the local COVID guidelines. FOCUS Missions also strongly recommends the purchase of extra insurance for all our participants to cover any cancellations that may arise from situations outside of our control. For more details, please see our Insuring Your Trip page.
We welcome your questions and please know that we are working hard to assist you in mission this upcoming year. We ask you to join us in praying for all those affected by COVID-19.
