Mexico City: April 11 - 15, 2019

In the heart of this massive and culturally fascinating metropolis, you'll be working intensely with Hope of the Poor for those on the farthest edges of society: anything from street kids to elderly, infirm women, or families literally inhabiting dumps to survive. Not only that, you'll get the opportunity to encounter Our Lady of Guadalupe at the National Basilica, the most visited pilgrimage site in the entire world, nearly every day. So dive right into these dark corners, just south of the border.

Peru: June 14 - 24, 2019

Imagine waking to an altitude of 14,000 feet, breathing in the crisp air of the Andes, and praying that today you may “cry the gospel with your life.” This is a dream that can be your reality as we renew our faith adventure in the country of Peru. To begin, we will be working with the Christian Life Movement in Lima, where you will have the chance to serve Christ by working in the poorest neighborhoods surrounding the capital city. You will, also make pilgrimages to the tombs of two of Peru’s greatest Saints: St. Rose of Lima and St. Martin de Porres.

Upon your return to Lima, you will have the opportunity to work at a children’s home where disabled and abandoned children from all over Peru are brought for medical care. Work side-by-side with volunteers from across the world as you serve those in need.

Fundraising

  1. Each FOCUS Missions participant has the opportunity to fundraise the entire cost of their mission trip. Consider that fundraising allows people who may not have the opportunity to travel on a mission trip to participate in this essential work through you. In another sense, “some give by going, while others go by giving.” Allowing others to support us through their financial commitments and prayers is essential to the success of FOCUS Missions!
  2. After you have been accepted on a mission trip, you will be contacted by your personal fundraising coach who will train and mentor you along the way. 
  3. Please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email with your fundraising questions.
