OPENINGS ON TEAM GOING TO HAITI FROM ALABAMA-WEST FLORIDA CONFERENCE
There are openings on a scheduled August 17-25, 2010 UMVIM Team to Haiti, coordinated by the Alabama-West Florida Conference. The team will be lead by Rev. John Fox, Auburn UMC, Auburn, Alabama, who has extended experience in Haiti. If you know of someone, particularly a potential team leader, who is looking for a team, please have them contact Glenn Glover ASAP.
The cost will be $655 per person plus airfare (currently $595 from Atlanta to Port au Prince), plus we ask that your church provide $350 towards the required $3500 project costs required for each team. UMCOR is matching the $3500 donation, so that $7000 will actually be available for use in Haiti. The team plans to purchase individual airline tickets (as opposed to group tickets). Once the team is set and the airline schedule is determined, you will be responsible for purchasing your airline ticket to match the airline schedule for the AWF team, if possible (AWF team will fly from Atlanta to Miami to Port au Prince -- hopefully on the same day).
If not possible, or substantially cheaper, you must plan to arrive in/depart from Haiti on the same day as the AWF team to accommodate transportation in Haiti. Some flight schedules require an overnight stay in Miami or if we leave early, you may want to overnight in Atlanta. Please email Glenn Glover at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating or have questions. Once an open slot is confirmed, I will email you an application form to complete A $500 deposit will be required with the application.
