Send your Pastor to the Mission field! This trip is designed primarily for EFC-MAYM Pastors but could be open to other missions leaders or church leaders as well, assuming space will be available.
You are invited to participate with me in a “Pastors Only” mission trip to visit and minister among our 3 EFM fields in Nepal in January 2017. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about Friends missions, visit a field that is impacted by persecution, to encourage and bless our missionaries, and fellowship with fellow Friends pastors while serving. The trip will take place January 3-13, 2017 and cost $3300. Our team will participate in a pastors conference and a retirement celebration service for John & Sangi Vanlal, our retiring EFM missionaries who have been serving in Nepal since the early 90s. Then the team will visit the churches and ministries of both Samson & Priscilla Retnaraj and B. & D. A., spending a few days with each missionary. We will visit villages and churches in different parts of Nepal and bring encouragement, fellowship, and plenty of opportunities for preaching and teaching.
If you are interested in participating in this trip:
1. Let me know within a week if you are interested in going. Apply for passport if you don’t already have one. Expedite processing if necessary.
2. Send in $300 deposit, Registration Form and Liability & Medical Release Form to EFC-MAYM form by October 25. Plane tickets will be purchased around this date.

$3300 total cost (subject to change based on actual costs – air ticket biggest variable) includes airfare (international flight to Nepal and domestic flight in Nepal), all lodging, all food and meals within Nepal, host thank you gifts, all travel in Nepal, etc. The total amount does not include passport, airport travel meals, immunizations, souvenirs, etc. Immunizations are optional. It is up to you to ask your doctor and/or see this link so you can decide what immunizations to get. Visit your county health department for cheapest immunization costs.
I can send you advice on fundraising for the trip, if requested. All team members will be asked to read “Cross Cultural Connections” by Duane Elmer prior to the trip and participate in a video conference orientation session in the weeks leading up to the trip.
More details and information about the trip will be sent to the team and those interested. Please let me know if you have any questions.
