As the world battles COVID-19, international travel has been massively restricted and it is our responsiblity to stay home and slow the spread.
As such, we do not currently have any Journeys of Compassion open for registration.
However, we always offer a Journey Savings Account (JSA). You can make tax deductible donations during this season so that as soon as our Journeys open for registration, you have already saved the money to register.
Additionally, if you would like to be notified as soon as our Journeys open, you can fill out this quick contact form to let us know about your interest and we will keep you updated.
Again and again, we hear words like these as men, women, and children discover the joy of going to the front lines to be used by the Lord to bring his salvation, healing and hope to the poor and unreached.
Journeys of Compassion put hands and feet to the adventure of the Gospel, where together we live out the reality that the Kingdom of God is big enough and powerful enough to touch every part of life. Everywhere we go, Christ is preached, the sick are healed and good news to the poor is demonstrated in prisons, hospitals, mobile medical clinics, and feeding programs. Journeys vary in length from one to two weeks, and reach across the world, from Africa to Asia to Central America.
Men, women, and children who choose to join us are those who desire to go beyond what they have ever experienced in their Christian life––to be used by the Lord to bring His salvation, healing, and hope.
I hope that this letter finds you healthy and safe in these uncertain times. I don't think any of us could have anticipated how the Covid-19 pandemic would cause such a prolonged global lockdown. I'm sure it has been a challenging season for all of you.
Although the majority of our activities are currently on hold, our partners have been hard at work feeding day laborers who were starving as a result of the lockdown. In less than two weeks, the Impact Nations family has provided over half a million meals in six different nations.
I'm sorry to report that we have made the difficult decision to cancel all remaining Journeys of Compassion for 2020. Under normal circumstances we would already be working closely with our in-country partners to plan the details of these Journeys, but they are obviously unable to make the necessary arrangements at this time. Nor do we wish to expose you to the potential risk of international travel during the pandemic.
Journeys of Compassion are an important part of the Impact Nations mission, and we look forward to resuming them when it is safe to do so. In the coming months, our team will draft a tentative schedule for 2021, but remain very flexible. If travel opens up it might be possible to shift the 2020 trips into the first 6 months of 2021.
Some of you have already started a Journey Savings Account. This is an excellent way to begin saving towards a future Journey of Compassion, even if you don't know which Journey God will direct you toward.

Since 2005, Impact Nations has led over 60 Journeys to 18 nations around the developing world; more than 1500 people have registered for one of these trips.
Why do we put so much time and effort into planning and conducting Journeys?
Ever wonder why people go on a Journey of Compassion, or what happens when they do? Curious about the Impact that a Journey has on team members and locals? Danielle took a few minutes to give us an idea of what drives her to go and tell us a few stories from the road a Journeyer travels:
Journeys of Compassion are valuable on at least three levels:
The Kingdom of God is the Kingdom of Multiplication. Our vision is that every Journey of Compassion would be about multiplication, not only in healing and salvation in those we serve overseas but also in the community of each and every journeyer who comes. To help you multiply the workers in your area we are offering a refer a friend credit. Now when you refer someone who has never been before, we’ll give you a $100 credit against your fundraising target*. So invite your friends, families, coworkers, small group members, and pastors! Together we can raise up an army that is making an impact across the globe and at home.
For more information feel free to call the office at 1-877-736-0803.
*$100 credit applies only to a referral of the first-time journey of compassion team member.
Now you know why Journeys are so central to what we do. Year after year, we re-discover the great adventure and transformative power of the gospel. Experience the life-changing power of the gospel, for you—and for the countless lives that are changed through you.
