Family Mission's Company has helped my wife, our five children and myself to understand what it means to be a missionary. We have seen countless people transformed by their experience on short-term missions. Our lives have been enriched immeasurably by having the honor of working with the poorest of the poor, visiting the forgotten and feeding the hungry. And now they are being blessed with a huge influx of new missionaries wanting to be a part of this great organization. Is a wonderfulLife to live and a great cause to support. The world needs missions and FMC is responding to that need.

The Spirit is ALIVE at Family Missions Company. This is a nonprofit that practices what it preaches! I have been so blessed to be a part of what they are doing for the greater good of all humanity, both here in the US and abroad, on a few occasions. I have never been surrounded by more faithful and JOY-filled people than when I am with FMC. When I give to non-profits I worry about them spending money in extraneous and superficial ways, but because of the spirit of gospel poverty of the missionaries, staff and directors I know they are discerning in how they spend money and it is not frivolous to them.

What a joy it is to serve others in deed and truth. This is what FMC does. They do exactly what Jesus calls us to do, to enter into the lives of the people we live with, and to be powerful witnesses of our faith in Jesus Christ by our loving actions and words. Jesus is alive and desires a relationship with each one of us! This is what we share, a loving and merciful God.

FMC is a great organization. I have personally volunteered with them and cannot speak highly enough about them. These guys really practice what they preach and that is why they continue to grow as a company because people are naturally drawn to their authenticity. FMC has left their footprint all over the world and has positively impacted thousands of lives - not every non-profit can say they have worked in countries all over the WORLD. Whether it's helping out in their own backyard (the swamplands of south Louisiana) or serving deep in the Amazon jungle, one thing is certain: FMC is an authentic, trustworthy and mission focused organization that embraces love and stands by their beliefs.

WOW FMC is doing what Our current Pope is calling the Church out to do, in fact They are doing what every Good pope has called the Church out to do, but far more importantly they are being what Jesus has called the Church to be, that is they are being missionary. FMC has been the avenue that my family and I have taken to realize our true potential as sons and daughters of God. Our call as baptized Christians to take the gospel into all the world is an awesome and great responsibility that FMC is helping singles and families embrace and realize. They are indeed a great nonprofit.

Many people are seeking worthwhile activities that will bring more meaning and purpose to their lives and that will really make a positive difference in our world. We have found that Family Missions Company provides numerous opportunities to do this. Not only do they preach the Gospel, but they also live it in a radical way. When we donate to FMC, we rest assured that our donation is going to help the poor and those in real need. I challenge you to see for yourself how this non-profit is empowered by God Himself. May God continue to bless FMC!

Pope Francis is challenging the Church to a powerful missionary response. Family Missions company has based its work in Evangelism and Service to the Poor on a missionary impulse since 1997. With a global outreach, the model of the family, with Jesus at its center, is essential. The people served by FMC find new lives, spiritually, hopefully, and faithfully. Materially, they find new floors, new roofs, new homes, new amenities, new friends, new purpose for living. Lives and communities are dramatically changed. FMC as a non-profit is a great non-profit!

Family Missions Company is a unique non-profit company that is serving the church and the poor around the world. To my knowledge, there is no other organization quite like it. By forming and fascilitating its missionaries, family missions company empowers the laity to evangelize and change the world. It changed my life over 7 years ago, and continues to challenge me to be a better person.

I have worked with Family Missions Company for about a year now. This company has changed my life, but the most beautiful thing is that FMC has changed more lives than we can ever know. FMC is changing lives around the world by helping those in need and bringing people closer to JESUS. This is by far the best non-profit that I know.

Family Missions Company has been a part of my life for about 12 years. This Catholic lay organization is dedicated to serving the poor around the world. They help people with their physical needs as well as their spiritual needs and they bring the joy of the Gospel to everyone! FMC has been a tremendous blessing to me, my husband and our five children. They have been a beautiful avenue for volunteer work, formation for children and adults; and true Christian Community. Prayer is at the center of this organization and God has blessed it abundantly - more missionaries serving more people than ever before. They truly do GO where they are sent!

Family Missions Company is a committed organization of community dedicated to spreading the Gospel of Christ to the world! Their love of service and dedication to bringing the love of Christ to others is nothing short of inspiring and miraculous. And in our local community, their outreach to inspire Catholic teens through Faith Camp is a highlight in our summer! We love being a part of the mission community through donations and prayers, as not all of us can be global travelers spreading the good news, but we can all be instruments through which God travels. It's inspiring to know that helping these missionary families helps them do the best they can for the global community.

Family Missions Company is committed to transforming lives. Everyone they meet and serve is genuinely treated and cared for like family. They perform spiritual and corporal works of mercy with their whole hearts. The training their missionaries receive challenge them to put God and neighbor before self, and they succeed mightily in this goal.

I'd like to say that all of my experiences with FMC have been amazing. I've experienced every side of this organization, from being a volunteer, a full-time missionary, as well as a paid employee. They say what they do, and most importantly, they do what they say. If you want to have a genuine experience in helping others and spreading the word of God, then you need to connect with this group!

The best missions company ever!!!!! They proclaim the Gospel without watering it down, with joy and zeal! This company serves the poorest of the poor all across the world in so many countries. The thing that sets this company apart from all the rest is the send whole families (and large families at that -- anywhere from 2 to 11 kids per family!!!) to be a light and a challenge to those they serve. If a family of 11 can still live the faith with joy and peace, then surely everyone else can as well. What a powerful witness. We LOVE Family Missions Company!!!!!
