Puerto Rico Experience Trip 2018
October 6-12, 2018
Last fall, hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated the island of Puerto Rico. Now, several months later, the American island is still trying to restore normalcy as they dig out from the aftermath. On the front lines of the relief efforts, local Puerto Rican churches have been tirelessly loving and serving their communities. This fall, The Foundry, through Praying Pelican Missions , will send a team to Puerto Rico to partner with a local church by supporting and encouraging them in the work they are doing for their community. We will potentially be partaking in some light construction projects, doing food distribution, and doing some evangelism outreaches.
The total cost for the trip is $800 per person, plus the cost of flights (approx $500). This covers:, ground transportation, lodging, food, project costs and a sightseeing day. This does not include money for souvenirs, and other personal purchases. We will discuss how to raise the funds needed to go on the trip.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN GOING?
To prepare for the trip and get to know each other, we will be having four team meeting prior to departure. Trip participants should make every effort to attend all group meetings.
