Eight Days of Hope is blessed with many wonderful volunteers from all around the country and even the world — many of whom have followed Eight Days of Hope on multiple rebuilding events and rapid response trips. Because of the commitment volunteers show to serve God and serve others, we felt called to launch our own missionary program.
Our missionaries are volunteers who, through their own fundraising, selflessly help serve others with EDOH for 140 days per year and have unique access to professional leadership training opportunities. We are proud to say that as our program has grown, so has the missionary community committed to building God’s Kingdom on a daily basis.
Becoming a missionary is freeing and slightly scary at the same time. It has moved us even further into dependence on God to provide our needs. Serving others, whether away or at home, is what we have all been called to do, and we feel blessed beyond measure to do just that. We are grateful for the opportunity Eight Days of Hope, Global Outreach, our home church, and the many others who have partnered with us. They make our service possible.

For me, being a missionary wasn’t a decision of the mind or a desire of my heart, but a prayer filled calling to me and my husband by God to do his work. God gives us all gifts and passions and he gives us opportunities to use them for his glory. It is a true blessing and honor to serve as missionaries with Eight Days of Hope. The families and the volunteers we have met along the way have become a part of our family. We feel we are where God wants us to be at this time in our lives.

Being a missionary has been an amazing experience. We have been privileged to be on the front lines serving with a ministry that serves all around the country in disaster areas. And the most amazing part is we get to see God move in people's lives on a daily basis: bringing hope and restoring families to wholeness. God is so good.”
