Please note: Travel dates are approximate and may change slightly based upon available airline tickets. However, you will be notified well in advance of any change to the dates listed above. Cost may fluctuate slightly based on airfare costs, but as of now we anticipate that in order to meet minimum trip expenses, each trip will cost $1,500 inclusive of airfare from Kansas City. If you are flying from another location, our policy is that trip cost is $750, plus your airfare. We ask that an attempt be made to arrive in Haiti on the same flight as the balance of the team.
Initially, preference for team spots will be given to those who have not been able to travel on a team during the current calendar year of team travel. If you have already traveled to Haiti Lifeline during this season, we will make every effort to add to another team, but we would like as many people as possible to be able to experience this opportunity.
Haiti Lifeline uses Managed Missions, a team management site, to process applications. To apply, you are required to set up an account. Please follow the link below to apply for a team. Once you apply, someone will get back to you within a few days to advise you if you've been accepted on the team or placed on a wait list. You are required to pay a $100 deposit to submit your application.
"When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor . . . and Yourself" by Steven Corbett and Brian Fikkert
"From Foreign to Familiar: A Guide to Understanding Hot - And Cold - Climate Cultures" by Sarah A. Lanier
"A Call to Die: A 40 Day Journey of Fasting from the World & Feasting on God" by David Nasser
As of 2014: Food & Bible distribution costs and financial gifts to the staff at Lifeline will not be a part of team fees. If a team leader & team desire to do food & Bible distribution(s) or give financial gifts to the staff, teams will be responsible to do additional fundraising to cover the cost.
Each team has been designed with a particular focus or set of goals. When putting teams together, priority may be given to those that best meet the team's goals and focus. However, even if you do not fit into a particular group or demographic, that will not necessarily preclude you from being part of a particular team. For example, priority may be given to adoptive families on the trip with that focus, but individuals who are not adopting may still be able to travel with that team if space is available, and so it is with the other teams as well. That said, please do not feel that you must offer a specific skill set to be part of a team. We want to continue the tradition that anyone can be an asset on these teams, as long as they come with a heart to serve. God often uses each of us in unexpected ways.
