Mission teams have been an important part of FHC’s ministry since the first team visited us in 1994. Teams can experience FHC’s mission and vision by helping to care for the children, working on maintenance and construction projects at our homes, and participating in other special activities.

Mission trips help members connect with each other on a deeper level – and as they spend time with the children and caregivers, they reflect God’s love, and honor Him. We’ll plan an itinerary that fits your team’s objectives, combining local sightseeing and lots of ministry time.

FHC will help you plan and organize your mission trip by:
• staying in touch with team leaders
• planning a customized itinerary
• handling the finances
• collecting project fees
• reserving lodging at FHC
• arranging in country transportation and sightseeing
• organizing other ministry outreach opportunities…

…and all those important details that make a ministry trip to FHC-Ecuador a memorable experience!

Teams receive the advantage of professional and attentive assistance throughout the pre-trip planning process. FHC will provide services and benefits that improve your team’s safety, security and enjoyment during your visit to Ecuador.
