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.
