Westwinds 2018 Missions Trips

Over the last 12 years at Westwinds, I’ve led 8 mind-blowing trips with our high school students, and I am excited to bring that same experience to our adults. Below you will find some general information about the trips, as well as our process for preparing to have some incredible experiences! Thanks for being a part of this!

In the Dominican Republic, we are working with Darrell and 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! You can follow Bonnie on Facebook.

In India we will be working with our long time Westwind’s partners, Thangkholal Haokip and Suresh Sawant. These pastors are doing incredible work in two very different parts of India, and we are excited to partner with both of them.

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.)
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.
You will need an up-to-date passport. Passports costs around $175 and you can get one here. You will also need a visa when traveling to India. Instructions for applying will be given once your application has been accepted.
To find that out if you need vaccinations, you can consult your physician or visit the CDC website.
You can sponsor an individual on a trip or just give a general donation that we will apply to those who need it.
