World Missions now requires applicants to hold current passports as a prerequisite for applying for a mission trip. Some countries require that your passport be valid at least six (6) months beyond the dates of your trip. Some airlines will not allow you to board if this requirement is not met. Make sure to order expedite shipping to receive your passport in time to apply for the trip.
