  • We write a fundraising support letter template for each trip. It can be found on each trip’s information page under the fundraising section. It’s completely editable and you may use it however you’d like to get the word out about the opportunity you have to join this mission and how anyone who wants to can support financially.

WMA strongly recommends the purchase of comprehensive travel insurance, which includes coverage for trip cancellation, lost luggage, emergency evacuation, and medical expenses. This will protect any funds that are nonrefundable as well as cost for flights and other travel expenses.

While WMA has no affiliation with any insurance providers, we have successfully used the insurance company mentioned below for our staff and missionaries. However, you may pick any other provider of your choice.


There many customizable insurance coverage options available such as trip cancellation, trip interruption, and cancel-for-any reason insurance. While your airline may offer insurance for your flight, we have found private insurance companies such as this one listed below often offer comparable if not better coverage options at similar if not lower prices.

Be prepared for an overseas medical emergency or illness with travel medical insurance including emergency medical evacuation benefits, terrorism coverage, and more.


Prior to going on a mission trip to Ireland, Shelvie purchased travel medical insurance through one of our recommended insurance providers. During her trip she fell and broke her and had to have a hip replacement surgery. The insurance covered all her medical expenses while in Ireland, it also covered the upgrade to first class with a personal medical travel aid for the trip home. During the flight home Shelvie was able to share the Gospel with the medical aid. This was God’s way of helping Shelive to accomplish her mission in spite of the accident. We believe in God’s protection and provision for every WMA missionary!

  • If you have a particular ministry talent such as gift of preaching, Bible teaching, music, drama, children or youth ministry, intercessory prayer, counseling etc., please let us know in advance so that we could utilize it as much as possible.
  • If you are unsure of your ministry talents, you will be asked to share your testimony, participate in prayer, one-on-one ministry and Bible distribution. Keep in mind; our most talented people initially were unsure of their ministry talents. Remember, GOD QUALIFIES!
  • Your ministry schedule will take you to churches, city-wide meetings, people’s homes, hospitals, orphanages, refugee camps etc., depending on the country.
  • God chose you because He has determined that your life experience, your gifts, and your story are going to be useful for this place and time.
  • Your testimony is your most powerful tool. We all have many experiences in our lives of God’s favor, provision, deliverance, and rescue. These are our best tools to introduce someone to Jesus.
  • Pray and seek God about which story you should share during the trip. You may not know all the people you will encounter on your journey but God does. He prepares divine appointments for us. If you consult Him in advance, He will help you be prepared.

  • When you join World Missions Alliance you don’t just join a missions team, you join a family.

  • These people make up an invaluable support system and become life-long friends who will prove to put as much into you as you are willing to put into them.
  • Generally we stay in a hotel or condo. In most cases you will room with one other team member of the same gender unless you are traveling with a child or grandchild of the opposite gender and would like to room together. You may pay an additional fee to request a private room.
