Global AIM Missions Trip in 5 easy steps:
1. Complete an Outreach Application
Request a hard copy via Email. In order to be considered for a specific trip you must submit a Good Faith Deposit of $200.00. This amount will be applied towards total cost of trip but is non-refundable if you decide not to go. If you are a first time applicant, there is a onetime fee of $25 dollars to process your application in addition to the Good Faith Deposit of $200.00.
2. Trip Acceptance Verification
Global Aim will notify you of team acceptance once your application has been reviewed and your Good Faith deposit has been received. You will then get a Team Packet that will have information regarding the trip you will be taking with us. This packet will include information on the country you will be visiting, an invoice with payment schedule, the recommended immunizations for the location of your trip and a Medical/Liability Release Form.
3. Trip Preparation
Global AIM will secure flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX); however we are not responsible to fly team members to meet us at LAX. We will let you know at the time of acceptance to the team. Global AIM will be responsible for all in country travel, accommodations and meals, and some sightseeing. We will ask you to check one suitcase in for personal belongings and leave the other for mission supplies.
You are responsible for ensuring you have your passport and the expiration date needs to be greater than six months after we return from the trip.
Roughly two months before the trip you will receive a second packet of information including a rough itinerary with emergency contact information to leave with loved ones and what items you will need to pack with you.
4. Adhere to the Payment Schedule
Trip costs cover airfare and all in-country transportation, accommodations, most meals in country, travelers insurance and some sightseeing. A Tourist Visa is necessary for India. We will provide you with information and assist in securing it prior to leaving the US. There is an additional fee from the host embassy of approximately $75 for a six month visa.
The payment schedule is in place to ensure that we can do the proper planning and preparation for each trip while making it in easy payments for you. Countless trips have been paid for by raising support. If you would like more information on how to go about doing that please feel free to contact the office and we will provide you with some helpful suggestions.
5. And you’re off!
Global AIM works with in-country local churches many months in advance of our arrival. Much care goes into making each outreach a success. We are excited you are accepting the challenge of meeting people in developing nations to share your love and compassion. Even though each outreach is different, the common thread is that people respond to God’s love through his people.
