Adventures had a squad of World Racers on the front lines of the refugee crisis in Lesvos, Greece throughout the month of October. The need is still great, hundreds of refugees are arriving daily, and we plan to mobilize more trips to go and serve alongside our partner ministries there. Sign up if you'd like to stay up to date on current needs and relief trips.
WHEN DISASTER HITS, WE RESPOND.
Adventures in Missions responds to both domestic and international disasters, from neighbors next door to friends on the other side of the world. Because needs differ with each disaster's location and intensity, our agile response efforts fill the gaps, meeting needs other relief organizations can't or don't meet.
You can join us the next time disaster hits. To be on our first responder list and be informed of potential disaster relief opportunities, sign up on the right.

This month, two World Race teams from W Squad are serving in Lesvos. Five World Race alumni also went to serve for various lengths of time. The need is still great, so we have scheduled new 35-day mission trips over the next few months. Anyone over the age of 18 can apply. Click here for trip information!

Nearly three billion people were affected by natural disasters in the last decade. In this video, Jerri shares her story of one life devastated, one life restored. This is why we show up— to be the hands and feet of Jesus, to build homes, hope, and an open door for the Gospel.
About the Relief Fund:
Given the unpredictable nature of these disasters, precious time is lost when making efforts to raise funds while victims are already in desperate need. That's why we have created a general Disaster Response Fund allowing us to respond immediately to disasters as they are happening.
As we continue to make you aware of the ways you can help when these events occur, consider supporting the Disaster Response Fund throughout the year so resources are available for our teams to act immediately when unexpected disasters hit.
