Reviews for Extreme Missionary Adventures
God provided me the opportunity this year to go on a mission trip to Nicaragua. It was my first mission trip outside of the United States and it could not have been a better experience. From the time we arrived at the airport until we left a week later, Terry and Denise Parks provided for all our needs. Our transalators, Alex and Jairo, where awesome. God opened my eyes to so many things during that week. Seeing so many people from the villages coming to watch a film about Jesus each night was amazing. Nicaragua is a beautiful place and we met some amazing people along the way. I'm praying for the opportunity to return there again next year. Thanks again to Terry and his team and to XMA for the amazing trip. To God be the glory.
The XMA Experience with Terry Parks and the team was life changing. It allowed me to see the unreached world that is lost. And when you speak the word of Jesus Christ, they are eager to listen and learn. Its a win/win for everyone. Life changing - on both sides of the coin. By far the most memorable experience in my life. Trevor George - Nashville TN
Just finished my first trip with XMA and I am one satisfied customer! Randy White had contacts throughout the region and every detail was planned. Highly recommend XMA!
I have traveled with XMA 5 times now and they run a first class operation. They are always organized and provide a great opportunity to share the gospel in remote areas of the world!
I just completed my 6th trip with XMA. I highly reccommend this nonprofit. I will be traveling with them in the very near future! Thank you XMA for your integrity! You guys ROCK!

I have been on 4 mission trips with XMA and my 5th trip is scheduled next month. I have had an incredible life changing experience each time! Terry and Mrs. Denise are amazing and what they do in Nicaragua is so inspirational. My family loves them so much! Nicaragua is always in my heart!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
About 4 years ago, a lifelong friend invited me and a few guys from our church to go on a mission trip he was leading to Nicaragua. He had recently joined XMA staff and we had a fantastic trip. We all pitched in a few extra bucks and purchased 200 pairs of used prescription glasses, along with an "eye doc in a box" kit. We were able to use this kit to measure the vision of villagers in need and give them an appropriate pair of glasses. At the same time a physician and a pharmacy owner teamed up to run a medical clinic. During the evening, we showed a film in Spanish that clearly presented the gospel and a member of our team gave a talk about how to have a relationship with Jesus. It was a great time and soon after I got back, I was asked to serve voluntarily on the board. Since then, I have been on two other trips to Honduras - one using my skills as a dentist and the other was a pastor-training retreat that we put on for the local pastors of house churches.
If you are considering a mission trip with your family, church group, or just a group of friends, I highly recommend XMA. A staff member will help you plan your trip and then lead it for you. They are very flexible to the needs and desires of the group, but also have experience and insight to the local areas that they go. In short, XMA trip leaders and office staff make your trip planning stress free.
I had the experience of going on a mission trip to Nicaragua this year, which was my first trip with XMA! It was an awesome experience with seeing not only God at work but also XMA takes care of all your needs regarding interpreters, meals, and accommodations. I can't wait to go on my next trip!
I have had the honor of serving with XMA on 4 trips to Nicaragua, with a 5th scheduled in January. My first trip was a medical missions with a team from our church. I remember wondering why I was lead to this team because I am a teacher. Our first trip was challenging for me as we hiked through mountains and a beautiful rainforest to reach the village of Santa Ana. I remember how beautiful the stars were at night. It was as if you were so close to the heavens up on that mountain. The place was so remote they did not have a school or a teacher. I was challenged to teach the pastor's son how to read. Imagine my dilemma, as I spoke no Spanish. With God as my strength, I worked with the pastor's children as well as other children in the village - and God confirmed my place on the team. The people of the villages are very poor but grateful and always bless and enrich our lives. If you feel led to go on a mission - I urge you to do so. The XMA team leaders in Nicaragua are my close personal friends and will guide you through the entire adventure. You will love the people of this country.
Going on a mission trip guided by XMA missionaries is one of the single greatest experiences of my life. God is truly at work in this organization.
