“I recently returned from my 3rd XMA trip in 15 months. I have had the opportunity to work in 2 separate areas of Honduras and most recently Nicaragua. I first came in contact with XMA in Honduras while leading a team from another organization. After spending a short period of time talking with the team leaders, I quickly realized these guys had it right. They were willing to sacrifice all of the comforts we as Americans had come to depend on to get the Gospel out to those hard to reach villages. Working and planning trips with XMA has been the easiest of all the organizations I have worked with. Even though I have only spent about 24 days working with XMA on the field, my service as a short term missionary has been changed forever.”

Committed Partners

Committed local partners are the secret to effective short-term missions! Our dedicated trip leaders have invested years vetting and forging strong partnerships with local churches, pastors, and missionaries.  These long term relationships are what sets XMA apart and what makes our ministry effective in remote, unreached areas. 

Short-term missions with a long-term impact.  This is not ‘Go paint a house and return home feeling good missions.’  When you invest your time and money serving with XMA you can be assured of long-term impact.  We’ve worked with many of our local partners for over 16 years and are an integral part of their long-term strategies to reach their people for Christ.

Security Experts

We fervently believe that God has called each of us to share his Good News with the unreached.  But taking the Gospel to those trapped in spiritual darkness, poverty, and injustice is challenging. These experiences are not simple to plan or easy to execute without an expert guide. 

Sharing the Gospel at the edge of the map and getting safely back home is our calling.  We’ve invested years developing networks for effective ministry in remote, unreached locations and a comprehensive risk management system to cover your back.  Our team leaders are certified in Wilderness First Aid and have extensive security training and experience.  We employ a world class 24/7 Risk Management firm to help decide where, when, and how to best serve in our increasingly unstable world.

XMA provides a Comprehensive Safety Net for every volunteer.  Things do go wrong—so it’s best to be prepared.  It may be as simple as the inconvenience of a flight delay, the more troubling typhoon or earthquake, or a life threatening heart attack or military coup.  Our professional team of trip leaders, in-country partners, consultants, and risk management analysts have successfully handled all of these bringing our volunteers safely home.  While there are no guarantees, we go the extra distance to ensure your safety. 

“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.”
