What about the logistics?


We will be staying at Casa Paraiso, very close to the Panama Canal.  Casa Paraiso is a missions facility run by Dan and Jess Cotton.  Every year they hosts dozens of Christian events.  About half our meals will be served here and about half will be at the schools or at local places of interest.  Most of the accomodations are dormitory style with a few rooms for couples.

Please make every effort to fly to Panama on United flight 1034 from Houston TX or American 959 from Miami Arriving April 2. These flights arrive at 7:30 PM and 8:06 PM in Panama City and will enable us to greet all of you as a group and get you safely back to the Rio Mission facility.  If you arrive at other times, you may have to take a taxi which is about $35.  You must have a valid passport with six months left until expiration.

The cost of the trip is $1395 and includes meals, lodging, Journey Deepens materials, Canal Visitor Center admission, health insurance and transportation within PN.  You are responsible for spending money and your airfare

We have a limited number of seats on the trip, and a nonrefundable deposit of $125 is required no later than Jan 25 to guarantee you a spot. Full payment is due no later than February 15.

 If you cancel after making the deposit, the $125 is not refundable. If you cancel after February 15, you forfeit the entire amount. Please understand we have financial commitments that we have to cover to make the trip a positive event for everyone, and this is the only way for us to do that.  You may want to consider purchasing trip insurance through one of the many companies offering it.

 After you make the deposit, we will set up a web link where you and your supporters can make payments towards your trip, less your airfare.  If you cancel before February 15, all the funds will be returned to the donor less the $125 deposit.

 You should not purchase any airline tickets until we tell you that the trip is definitely on. This will be about February 16. If the minimum number of participants is confirmed earlier, MissionNext will notify you to go ahead with ticket purchases.  If we do not have the minimum number required to conduct the trip, all of your funds including the deposit will be returned.
