About Dirty Feet Mission
Dirty Feet Missions is a Humanitarian organization based on Biblical truth and Godly standards. We believe in meeting the physical and spiritual needs of people through long-term relationships and unconditional love. We take individuals and groups to both domestic and international locations on customized trips. Our trips are open to anyone ages 13 years old and up desiring to make a difference in the world that we live in.
There are great benefits to international and domestic travel. Loosely quoting Mark Twain, “Travel is the best antidote to bigotry, narrow mindedness, and self centeredness.” Here in the United States it is easy to get caught up in pursuit of your own happiness. We often forgot about the many people in our world who are without hope. Romans10:15 says, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” That is what Dirty Feet Missions is all about. Simply to show people love and bring them hope. I invite you to open up your heart, forget about yourself, get your feet dirty and realize that when you give of yourself to others, you will be changed in the process.
About the founder
Genia O’Neal, founder of Dirty Feet Missions, began her mission experience in 1991 as a Youth Pastor. During her 22 years of ministering to teenagers and the 25 trips that she managed, a passion for showing the world the unconditional love of Christ evolved. It was also on these trips that she realized the transformation that takes place when a person realizes that there is more to life than self, it is about doing something for someone else without the expectation of anything in return.
In September of 2011 Genia knew that missions was to be her new focus. Dirty Feet Missions was birthed out of a desire to develop long term relationships with people from all walks of life and introduce them to the adventure of missions.
Genia lives in Bryceville, Florida with her husband of 37 years, Eddie. They have 3 grown children. Eddie Jr, Lindsay and Brooke and 2 grandsons, Brodee and Maddox.
