FUTURE TEAM TO NICARAGUA
VIM Mission to Nicaragua June 14-23 2010Bob and Regina Elgin are looking for two or three more adults to join a VIM mission trip to Nicaragua this June 14 -23rd. We work primarily with the Metodista (Methodist) churches and marginally with Fabretto Familia Associacion (Jesuit) ministries. This particular "Volunteers In Mission" trip is focused on the children of several of these communities. You will get a feel for the situation in Nicaragua (the second poorest country in the Western hemisphere behind Haiti) while meeting such loving and giving people of this diverse Central American country. The total cost is $1500 of which $100 goes directly to the ministries. The trip is tax deductible with all fees, insurance, food, lodging and transportation included. Air fare is based on Dayton, Ohio, so may be more or less depending on your departure city. If you are interested in knowing more and serving the Lord in this manner, please contact Bob and/or Regina Elgin at 884-3553, or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
