A friend of mine recently asked for some help. He needs a team of 4 or 5 from the US to work with missionary kids during a meeting in February that will be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand. His note tells me that the travel costs to/from are about $2000 and "once they are there, it would cost about $55 per day per person, sharing a room. That is, a couple would pay $110 for their room. This cost would include room, breakfast and lunch. Supper would be on their own and costs are reasonable with everything from Thai food to Starbucks and Burger King . Of course, as people go out together we would love for the youth team to tag along.
I am hoping we can have a real sharp team who really knows how to put together a program. Of course, they could also have 'field trips' such as elephant rides, or the 'through the rain forest canopy' kind of things."
This is a really great opportunity to help those who are impacting the world and for people to experience a land and a culture that is remarkable. If you think you might have 4 or 5 people who would like to take on this opportunity, please let me know and I will help make the connections happen.
Grace and Peace, Tom
