Trips

We have two trips to choose from in 2018. Check out the information below.

1. What are the dates for the trips?

Our trip to the Dominican Republic is March 10th through March 17th.

Our trip to India is November 2nd through November 12th.

2. What do the trips cost?

Dominican Republic: $1700.00

India: $3000.00

3. Who are we partnering with?

In the Dominican Republic, we are working with Darrell and Bonnie Clowers (https://give.iphc.org/missionaries/217983 or https://www.facebook.com/bonnie.clowers). They are incredible missionaries working all over Central America and the Carribean. They are developing leaders and planting churches all over the place, and we get to help them with their latest project – a ministry center in the Dominican that will be used to train leaders!

In India we will be working with our long time Westwind’s partners, Thangkholal Haokip and Suresh Sawant (https://www.facebook.com/thangkholal.haokip.1 and https://www.facebook.com/Ansuresh). These pastors are doing incredible work in two very different parts of India, and we are excited to partner with both of them.

4. Who can go on the trips?
These trips are for ages 16 and up. Teenagers under the age of 18 must be accompanied on the trip by a parent. (We have amazing youth mission’s trips for high school students if you’d like your child to have their own unique experience.)

5. What are the pre-trip requirements?
We will have regular team meetings that are required to be a part of the trip. During these meetings we will unpack our missiology (what we believe about missions), get to know each other, and prepare for the specific work we are doing. Additionally, there will be 2-3 meetings after the trip to debrief.

6. Do I need a passport?
Yes, you will need an up-to-date passport. Passports costs around $175 and you can get one here (https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports/apply.html)  You will also need a visa when traveling to India. Instructions for applying will be given once your application has been accepted.

7. Do I need vaccinations?
To find that out, you can consult your physician or visit the CDC website (https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/list).

8. What if I can’t go but still want to help?
You can sponsor an individual on a trip or just give a general donation that we will apply to those who need it.
