France
“In France, we served people who were poor in health, poor in material goods, and poor in spirit, and I encountered Christ everywhere we went. To see the state of Catholicism in France was a wake-up call, but at the same time, serving and serving with these living and breathing tabernacles gave me hope for the future of the church and the world.”

Come join us for our pilgrimage/mission to France! This mission trip will be two fold, service and pilgrimage. We will serve in Lourdes, the site of the famous Marion apparition, and Paris and will also be travelling to Lisieux to visit the tomb of St. Therese.

  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. You will be contacted by your personal fundraising coach soon after you have been accepted on a mission trip to train and mentor you in each step along the way.
  3. Please feel free to contact us at any time by phone or email with your fundraising questions.

“The FOCUS missions trip has been a huge step forward in my walk with Christ. You don’t know how much you need God until He is all you have. Being so much out of your element forces you to lean on Him, and now I have an idea of what that is like in everyday life.”

“My mission trip with FOCUS to France brought me way out of my comfort zone by bringing me together with a group of 13 strangers to spread the Gospel in a foreign land. By the end we were family and I was perfectly comfortable with all the discomforts. All the ways God worked in my heart are still fleshing out. The FOCUS missionaries go out of their way to love you not for what you do but because you are. I highly recommend FOCUS mission trips to anyone at any point in their faith journey!”

– Allison Harrison, Southeastern Louisiana University
