Since 2004, nearly 3,500 college students and FOCUS staff have traveled the world on close to 200 FOCUS mission trips. During the 2016-2017 academic year, &amp;lt;a href=”http://www.http://focusmissions.org”&amp;gt;FOCUS Missions&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; is planning 120 trips in 38 countries.&amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;As &amp;lt;a href=”https://www.focus.org/missionaries/ryan-thomas-noll”&amp;gt;NYU Team Leader Ryan Noll&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; sees it, “We do mission trips so that college students have an opportunity to encounter Jesus in the people that they meet, especially the less fortunate. Foreign mission helps us to see the universality of God and his desire to love and care for everyone.” &amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&amp;lt;p&amp;gt;Last summer, Columbia team director &amp;lt;a href=”https://www.focus.org/missionaries/129″ target=”_blank”&amp;gt;Niru De Silva&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; went on mission to Blessed Mother Teresa’s Home for the Dying in Kolkata, India. In his inspiring article, &amp;lt;a href=”https://focusoncampus.org/content/how-india-taught-me-the-cure-to-our-families-problems”&amp;gt;How India Taught Me the Cure to Our Families’ Problems&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;, De Silva shares how the experience opened his eyes to the importance of the family. &amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />

&amp;lt;div class=”blog-story-quote”&amp;gt;I have been working with both of these beautiful girls throughout the year and they are so very excited to go out and serve! We will be working in Marajo, Brazil in the small villages that only get mass once a year. This trip is going to be life changing for these girls and I feel honored at the opportunity to lead them.&amp;lt;span style=”float: right; color: #2c64bf”&amp;gt;—&amp;lt;a href=”https://www.focus.org/missionaries/emily-martinez”&amp;gt;Emily Martinez&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/span&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />

&amp;lt;div class=”blog-story-caption”&amp;gt;Four missionaries and 12 students participated in the Trinidad/Tobago trip, where they made home visits and helped out at orphanages.&amp;lt;/div&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />

&amp;lt;/div&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
&amp;lt;div class=”blog-story-quote”&amp;gt;Mission trips are one of the most fruitful opportunities that FOCUS has to offer. Students are drawn into them by the prospect of great adventure, but most of the time, they are led into a really deep encounter with God through their work with the poor in these third-world countries. &amp;lt;span style=”float: right; color: #2c64bf”&amp;gt;—&amp;lt;a href=”https://www.focus.org/missionaries/ryan-thomas-noll”&amp;gt;Ryan Noll&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;&amp;lt;/span&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />

"Work out your salvation with fear and trembling.
For God is the one who, for his good purpose,
works in you both to desire and to work.
Do everything without grumbling or questioning,
that you may be blameless and innocent,
children of God without blemish
in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation,
among whom you shine like lights in the world,
as you hold on to the word of life,
so that my boast for the day of Christ may be
that I did not run in vain or labor in vain." Philippians 2:12-16

The theme for this event is "Lines" (pun intended), and we will focus on taking cool shots that involve lines and geometry. We sincerely hope you can make it out!

As always, you do not need a DSLR (those "big fancy cameras") or any photography experience to participate on this excursion. Just come along with any camera you have, phones included, and have fun snapping photos!
