Rating: 4 stars  

I went on my first trip with xma in 2007, it changed my life and perspective on what it means to do missions... Since then, God has opened doors for me to go on trips with xma at least twice a year, and to multiple countries around the world...trips are physically and spiritually challenging, and there is a wide variety if ways to bring tje good news of our Lord to others around the world...highly recommend!!!

I have known many of the missionaries and staff of XMA for several years and they they are all wonderful people working for an amazing organization. And having volunteered with XMA several times in the past I have always found that tHey work hard to make sure your mission trip is a life changing experience where you will make memories you will carry with you for a lifetime. If you are looking for an adventure while changing lives then you should book your mission trip with XMA!

Would highly recommend to go on a mission trip with this organization. I have been on 10 mission trips since 2001. Each has blessed as much as the people we helped. Very well-run organization with true Christians running it.

I went to Ocotal, Nicaragua this past Feb 14 and going back this Jan. I fell in love with people of Octal. From the city to the surrounding villages, XMA and Full Count are reaching these beautiful people with the gospel. Loving on them as the gospel says to. Terry and Denise and their team of interpreters have such a ministry there. Shannon

I've made 7 trips with XMA, Randy White, in Peru and Honduras. As a Pastor and carrying other volunteers it is extremely important to be assured of integrity, safety, clarity and spiritual purpose. XMA excels in those areas. We have never had a glitch that concerned me knowing Randy White was our leader. We have more trips already scheduled. Pastor Gary

I've been on two trips with XMA now and our church will be doing more, Lord willing. Had the privilege of partnering with two of their leaders already and both were awesome in leading our team and giving the Lord the freedom to do what He wants to do. If I had ten thumbs, they'd get 10 thumbs up. :)

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Trips

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

They do great.

Extreme Missionary Adventures is just that. It is taking the teachings of Jesus to unreached, unengaged people groups all over the world. Where else can a person do the things you enjoy doing while sharing the teachings of Jesus. We have done everything from hiking, biking, motor bike, kayaking and camping just to name a few.

Being able to visit villages and mingle with the nationals there is great. Exotic food, beautiful scenery and making new friends along the way, wow, whoever said following Jesus Christ was boring. NO WAY!! ITS AN ADVENTURE WITH A PURPOSE.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've personally seen people come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord of there lives. I've seen people being able to make a living for themselves and I've witnessed many water wells being drilled for clean non contaminated water.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them all the money so more people could go share the gospel while giving humanitarian aid.

I've been to three different Asian countries and have been blessed every time. In two of the countries we have done drops and in the other we have shared Bible stories. Every trip is exciting and very unique whether we are hiking, kayaking, hiking or using a motor scooter. Everyone that has gone comes back a stronger follower of Jesus. The blessings we receive are unbelievable. The people groups we come across are amazing. There is no way that I can describe all of the experiences I've been through and my only regret is not joining up sooner. Come along with us and see what you have been missing

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing first hand how God can use you if you just make yourself available to Him. It's awesome to see how God works everything out. If you love God, people and the great outdoors come along for the adventure of a lifetime.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months

My first trip through XMA was in 2003 as a group of women from Rayville, LA went to the mission grounds in Olanchita, Honduras to minister to women who were either the wife of a pastor or a village leader. This was the first time women's ministry had been conducted in Honduras. The women's response to the teaching of God's Word to them was incredible. I had the privilege of returning in 2004, 2005, and again in 2010 to assist in ministering to the precious ladies of Honduras. These ladies have taught me how earnestly intercede for others, how to love unconditionally, and how women's basic needs and desires are the same wherever you are. We all want to love and be loved and to have the needs of our families met. They have taught me what is truly important in this life--loving the Lord Jesus Christ with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. Also this year I was able to spend one week with Osmany and Jennifer in Pane, Honduras. There a small group of Louisiana ladies conducted VBS to over 200 children and taught the Word of God to 19 women. To see joy in the eyes of children who have known only hopelessness made our own spirits jump with joy. To see women grow from feelings of such unworthiness that they wouldn't look at us during Bible study to clinging to us for individual prayer on the last day is beyond description. Our team also visited villages surrounding Pane to show them a movie about Jesus. The villagers had never seen a movie nor had they ever heard about Jesus. They now have seen their first movie and it was about Jesus. There were some salvations resulting from these visits. Praise God for His goodness in allowing me to share these wonderful experiences with ladies who love the Lord and are willing to give of their time, energy, and finances in order to walk in obedience to their Lord. Each time I have been chosen by my Lord to serve in Honduras the experience has been unbelievable in the natural for only God could do what I've witnessed.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

learning how to give of myself so that others could learn about Jesus through salvation and discipleship. The leadership XMA provides is incredible both in its office and on the mission field itself.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how the love of God and the willingness to serve Him are the heart's desires of those lead the teams and those who are team members.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

of one accord in their desires to fulfill the Great Commission that Jesus gave to us.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

greatly expand its territory in spreading the Good News to unreached people groups.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
