We were finally able to "lock in" travel dates for our mission trip:
Saturday, September 19, 2009 - depart for Kazakhstan
Sunday, September 20, 2009 - arrive in Almaty, Kazakhstan
Monday - Friday September 21-25, 2009 - work at the Kara-Kastek orphanage
Saturday, September 26, 2009 - depart for United States
In the next few days we will have the registration form up on our website. A $500 non-refundable registration fee will be due. Registration ends June 15, 2009.
We will be planning a "camp" for the week that will include sports and crafts as well as time to just "love on" the children. We will also be doing any work the orphanage may need. We will all be required to take one large bag of donations as well.
The cost of the trip will be an estimated $4000. This includes travel visas, travel to/from Almaty, lodging, all meals, transportation within Kazakhstan, and translator services.
We are waiting for our website "person" to put the info on there. It's our first time doing something like this so we are still learning. :)
If you are interested please leave a comment or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for a registration form. Payment is due in full by June 15th, no exceptions.
Hope you will come along and change a life!
