Making your deposit secures you a spot on the team subject to conditions noted below. Once accepted, you are encouraged to set up a monthly payment plan making sure the balance is paid by March 1, 2020.

Our team will be composed of people willing to step out of their comfort zones, to serve as needed and who have a 'go with the flow' attitude. Trip payments are non-refundable, unless you do not pass the background check or are not otherwise approved by the team leader. Matthew 2540 is a 501c3. Our EIN # is 47-2329664. Consult your accountant to determine the applicability of mission trip donations to your specific situation.

On the trip we will help the children and their families supported by Matthew 2540 donors be more successful in school through projects such as running medical and dental clinics, providing glasses, teaching vocational skills, reading, building beds and just celebrating being together through fun and games. Everyone who goes is involved in every project. There's no time to be bored but plenty of time to make a difference!

We specifically need these skills: physicians and/or nurse practitioners, pharmacists or pharmacy techs, dental hygienist, interpreters, a construction project leader, a career fair project leader and people who can teach a specific skill course and lots of support staff.

The team will fly on a group fare from Charlotte, NC. We will stay in a hotel in Antigua and ride by team bus 30 minutes daily to and from our work site. You will have access to clean water and delicious food. We have never had an issue with personal safety. Children 7-13 are welcome on the trip with a parent. Teens age 14-17 may travel solo with parental permission. Maximum age to apply is 99.

If you are interested in improving your Spanish, Antigua has some excellent Spanish schools which you could attend either before or after the mission trip. $350 additional should cover a private room with bath, 3 meals a day, in-country airport transportation, 20 hours of one-on-one instruction and afternoon group activities. If interested contact Lynn asap as you may need to book and pay for your flight outside of the group but in conjunction with group flights.

If you want to apply for the trip but have questions about how you might fit in or Spanish school, email Lynn@matthew2540.net or call 864-993-6715.
