Come join Family Missions Company on a short term mission trip to our mission base in Calcutta, India! Calcutta has been home to Family Missions Company mission trips for the last 5 years. Come and spend two and a half weeks with us in India and live a life that is centered around evangelization and service. In Calcutta our mission trip participants go out to share the Good News with people through their loving witness and in sharing their testimonies of God’s grace working in our lives. On this trip, families and individuals engage in Christian service, serving primarily with the Blessed Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity in their various homes. They will engage in humble service to the poor and dying, tending to the needs of Christ present in the least. The whole experience is wrapped in prayer and fellowship.
Many of our groups will be blessed to visit Mother Teresa’s leper colony located just outside of the city. Returning home in the evening, the team will be able to venture down to the hustle and bustle of Sutter Street, to visit the local markets and beautiful crafts of the Indian people. Another special day that FMC has each mission trip is our Desert Day, imitating Christ’s own pattern of life, we will spend a few hours away from town to simply be with the Lord in personal prayer, hear His voice and allow Him to fill us up again that we may continue serving. In India, our mission team will oftentimes venture out to a local park away from the main part of the city in order to have our desert day.
Vatican II tells us that missionary activity is the “greatest and holiest duty of the Church”! and we invite you to come and join us in living out the Great Commission of Jesus, making Him and His Church known to the ends of the earth!
