Teenagers Surprise Needy Families with New Homes



Less that 48 hours from now a group of nearly 200 high school students from Argyle, Texas will fly to the Dominican Republic for their spring break. Unlike other students who opted for beach destinations and parties with friends, these teens have decided to do something special…


Next week, they’ll surprise local families in the DR with new homes! Most homes in this area are made from scraps of metal and tarps discovered within all the trash. Our team will tear down several of these make-shift houses and rebuild a sturdy new homes that will last over time.



Plan to pray for this transformation!! Pray also for the evangelism that will sweep the city of Santo Domingo as our teams partner with local pastors and share the Gospel in public schools all next week!

Peter’s Story: One Teen’s Perspective on Short Term Mission Trips


Check out this awesome video!!

Peter, a high school student from Oklahoma, shot this footage while serving in Guatemala with RIM several times… You’ll soon see why he keeps going back!

Through his eyes, you’ll experience our 2-week Evangelism Trip, our 1-week Medical Trip and our 4-week Outreach trip. Even though this video takes place in Guatemala, it will help paint a picture of what it could be like for you to serve in any of our ministry locations this summer! When you’re finished watching, check out our upcoming trips:

  • Individual Trips – Send one or more students even when your whole group can’t go!!

Why GO on short term missions?


An often debated question, Christians have many opinions about the efficacy of short term mission trips… Is it worth it? Can we really make a difference? Shouldn’t we just send money to long term missionaries? Will we do more harm than good?

Here at Real Impact Missions, we enter into strategic partnerships with local contacts to do intentional evangelism and ministry that matters, and we invite you to join us. Our experienced leaders will help you explore God’s heart for the world. Skip the debates about whether or not to go… See for yourself!!

It’s not too early for summer 2017… Sign up today!
