Experience for yourself a life-changing international mission trip to El Salvador, in partnership with Compassion International, on Monday, May 6 through Saturday, May 11, 2019.
Here are the details you need to know:
While in El Salvador, we’ll be working with the Child Survival Program that Waters Edge Church sponsors. The trip will consist of home visits, providing programming and fun activities for the program children, and a work project to assist those in need.
Trip participation is limited to 35 people. Students, ages 13-17, must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Participants will be selected and notified by Tuesday, November 20.
The estimated cost per person will be $2,175 and includes: airline tickets, accommodations, food & beverages in El Salvador, transportation, trip insurance, background check, and activities. It does not include immunizations, passport fees, extra baggage fees, meals while traveling, or expenses for meeting your sponsored child. A non-refundable deposit of $300 will be due to Waters Edge Church on January 9. Final payment will be due by March 8. Applicants should be able to self-fund this trip, as fundraisers will not be planned.
If you have a sponsored child through Compassion International that lives in El Salvador, they will bring your child and their parent to you if you would like. Depending on how far they have to travel, the cost could vary between $40-$400.
There will be four required meetings and one highly recommended dinner. You must be able to attend all of the meetings in order to participate in this trip.
