By signing this application I (the student) understand that I am responsible for my deposit and inevitably the full cost of my trip (which will be raised by me).
A $350 nonrefundable deposit is due with your application to secure your spot on this trip. Once the trip has been booked with the airline you are responsible for all fees and costs paid to the airline. I also understand that preparation for this trip is crucial and promise to attend the mission trip meetings and fulfill all of the requirements for participation. If I fail to meet these requirements, I understand that I may be asked to give my spot to another student who can cover the requirements.
Finally, I agree to participate fully in the mission trip regardless of what obstacles we may encounter. I understand that mission work is hard and promise to give of my whole self, allowing Christ to work through me. I understand that housing may be cramped and uncomfortable, that the environment maybe extreme and food maybe different and limited and I fully welcome these challenges and opportunities.
By signing this application I (the parent) understand that my family is responsible in supporting my child monetarily, physically and mentally. I promise to help my child in raising the funds and participating in the mission trip meetings to the best of my ability. I understand that we are responsible to cover the cost of the trip if the funds are not fully raised by fundraisers.
I promise to help keep track of times and dates to insure that my child is on time to meetings and events. I will do everything in my power to keep the leadership of the trip appraised of any conflicts or issues. I understand that my child maybe asked to give up their spot on the trip if we fail to meet the minimum requirements.
Finally, I understand that my participation and encouragement is vital to the overall group mentality. I agree to support my child and the youth program in this mission trip in every way that I can.
