How is the accommodation arrangements work?
  • Teams will be divided by gender, men and women. Teams that choose a trip with airbnb house up to 10 people, with option to sleep 2- 4 people per room, with two people per double bed or individuals sleeping in single beds.
  • All rooms are designated either male or female.
  • Some teams opt to stay with host families, often church members, this obviously offers the highest degree of cultural immersion.
  • On the other extreme, some teams stay on site, in lodging on the mission organization’s property. This offers the least interaction with the culture, but is a real advantage for team building, training and debriefing.
  • Lastly, some destinations have resorts or high-end hotels. Choosing this type of accommodation typically prevents cultural immersion and risks magnifying the common perception that Americans feel superior to others. To avoid a perception which is not compatible with the attitude of Christ (Phil, 2:5-8), choose an organization which avoids these accommodations, if possible.
What if I am traveling with my spouse and we are staying at a Home/hotel?

Couples will be divided into gender-specific rooms unless an additional room is paid for couple in advance.

What if our family wants to stay in the same Home/hotel room?

Families may stay together in their own room, provided they have 3-5 people. Families that do not consist of 3-5 people will be divided into gender-specific rooms unless an additional room is paid for by the team (or family) in advance.

What kind of food will we be eating?

While serving in your host community, a variety of meals will be offered, from local cuisine to typical American style food. Usually the food is one of the team’s highlights!

Do I need to bring my own food?

Only if you have severe dietary restrictions or major allergies. In cases such as those, it’s wise to bring appropriate snacks to supplement your diet for the trip. We do our best to cater to the needs of each of our individual team members, but it’s always a good idea to bring snacks as well.

We will provide all meals from the time you arrive to the time you depart. You may wish to bring snacks.

Will there be an opportunity to buy souvenirs?

During your trip, usually during recreation or on the final day, you will have the opportunity to shop for souvenirs.

Is there a travel agent you recommend?

Booking travel arrangements is even easier with our third-party agent, we all book our trip together as team.

What is the long-term plan to support those we’ll serve during this short-term ministry experience?

The big picture is important. God does not call us to vacation abroad. (Now, a vacation is not a bad thing, and when given the opportunity, I’d take it. But getting in a plane means God called us to “Go, make disciples of all the nations” (Matt. 28:19).

How much of the trip’s cost is tax-deductible?

What is included in trip fees is tax-deductible.

Who will be leading the team and what are his/her/their qualifications?

The best team leaders are those who’ve lived in the country you’ll visit. They typically have the deepest relationships, the best grasp of the language, and the most familiarity with the culture. We have great team leaders

If the ministry includes interaction with orphans) How do you promote attachment between orphans and their caregivers while bringing teams in and out of their lives?

Keep the big picture in mind and ask, “How can we help make these children disciples of Christ?” It’s going to be by supporting the caregivers who have a long-term impact in the children’s lives and meeting their needs.

What will we be doing that the nationals can’t do for themselves?

This situation not only feeds the cycle of poverty, but also creates a culture of dependency and feelings of ineptness. Ideally, you will work in partnership with leaders on the field/host to create a mutually beneficial interaction.
