Prep for Trip

 

The team will have several meetings that will include prayer, country/culture overview information, travel prep, team building opportunities, in-country activity planning and our own mental/spiritual preparation for a trip like this. Attendance at the meetings is strongly encouraged for the greatest benefit of the team member and the team. As we approach the departure date, team meetings will become more frequent. There will be a debrief meeting when we return to the states.

Immunizations

There are no REQUIRED immunizations for travel to Brazil, but several suggestions by the CDC. We recommend that you check with your primary care physician and decide together which immunizations make sense for you. www.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/brazil

We need 10-16 TVCers for this trip to make.

I’m interested, ”What do I do?

  1. Confirm your level of interest with Cora before you leave today’s meeting/or via email if you are receiving this application via email.
  2. Pray for the Lord to make it clear whether or not you are to participate.
  3. Submit your application and $500 deposit as soon as possible.

The information in this handout is meant to give a general overview of what we know at this point and we expect that the information will change and evolve as we go. However, we hope that the information will be useful to you as you prayerfully consider joining us in Brazil next March. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Cora at [email protected]
