Common Questions

You could join another team that is already going on the mission trip. You could also pull together your own team of at least 12 from your campus, church, organization, family, or friends. Other options include things like corporate team-building/retreats, trips just for women, fathers and sons, high school groups, college groups, etc.

Well…how fast can you pack?!? Seriously though – choose dates that work for you and we’ll do our best to accommodate your schedule.

Most participants say, “Not long enough!” Typical trips last one week – one travel day to the location, four days of filter distribution and ministry, one day of recreation and cultural experiences, and one travel day back home. Can’t go for a week? No problem! Ask us about a mid-week or long weekend trip.

We currently have ministry bases in 11 countries – Belize, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti*, Honduras, Mexico and Panama. *We’re unable to send to our base in Haiti due to the current unrest there.

Our model is wonderfully unique:

  • Our local church partners prepare the neighborhoods and families your team will visit. 
  • Trip participants are divided into small groups and paired with a translator and a representative from the church to visit homes.
  • You’ll provide families with a water filter, and an opportunity to hear how much God loves them. We also provide Spanish New Testaments for your team to give each family. 
  • Our local church partners follow up with the families that your team visits, and disciple those who pray to receive Christ. So your team can have confidence that the ministry they are involved in during their trip is sustainable and continues long after they leave through the work of the local church. 

Your mornings and afternoons are spent connecting with families in the communities of our church partners; getting to know them; providing them with a water filter; and sharing the gospel. Evenings are spent connecting with your team about your experiences and how the Lord is working. There are always a few special surprises we try to throw in that allow your team to see and experience the local culture.  

We provide accommodations designed to allow you to rest and refuel:

  • All housing is clean and secure in safe neighborhoods.
  • Most bedrooms have air conditioning, unless lodging is at higher altitudes with cooler temps.
  • The food is totally safe, incredibly delicious, and dietary restrictions can be accommodated.  
  • We supply plenty of bottled water to stay hydrated and use when brushing teeth.

We pride ourselves in providing safe, fun, and life-changing 7-day mission trips at pricing anyone can afford: 

  • All-inclusive in-country cost: $800
  • 5 Filter of Hope water filters: $200
  • Team Fun Day: $50
  • Airfare: Pricing varies by location

We even provide you with tools and tips to help you raise money for your trip.

You will absolutely have all the help you need to make this trip a success! We handle all the details.

  • Your team will be assigned a Filter of Hope trip planner who will walk you through each step of the process, including an FOH Staff member in-country on the trip.  
  • Our goal is to handle as many of the details and logistics for you as possible.
  • Hundreds of people will have clean drinking water right in their own home – for the next 10 years!
  • Many will come to know Jesus Christ as their personal savior.
  • Your team will grow close by serving together, and carry a new excitement for ministry back home with them.
  • Your team will definitely grow confident in sharing their faith .
  • You can build leaders in your church, campus ministry, or organization.
    Oh, and you can bet your life will change, too!
