DR Mission Trip 2018: Last Call
Trip is June 23-30, 2018
It's the last call for missioners on our 2018 "Go Team."  The signup deadline remains January 31, and cannot be extended since we need to work with our Dominican hosts to make decisions on the projects we will undertake and a budget for those projects. We now have 10 members.

We have been monitoring the flight costs from Atlanta, and on January 25 the round-trip cost was $675.91. This price has been fluctuating between $640 and $700 for the past week. 

If you are interested in becoming a missioner on the 2018 team, contact Julia and Julius Ariail [(229) 563-0209,] and  discuss your participation with them. Once you are accepted on the team, then you can purchase your flight ticket before January 31.  For more information and instructions on flight ticket purchases and deposits, check the planning page  here .

Save the date May 3rd for the DR Dinner and Auction, our primary fundraiser for scholarships and team projects. Watch for more information coming soon.
