2019 Georgia Mission Trip

Trip Dates: October 18 – 27, 2019

This is indeed a special year; 2019 will be our 20th year of mission trips to Georgia! We will be visiting two schools: Ketseri (a K – 12 school) and Rioni (school for the deaf). Our goal is to break the cycle of generational poverty through education and the following projects: arts & crafts, mentoring sessions, sports, music, learning & leadership activities, parent input meetings, and fruit and medical kit delivery. Join our team in representing God’s love and providing hope for these children.

Mission Medical Consent

  • PRUMC cares about our team members’ health and safety.  We have a responsibility to the overall team, which must come before that of an individual.  Because of this, we have protocol in place prior to registration to avoid jeopardy of the mission.
    .
  • It is important to know that our missions take place in developing countries and the level of medical care is not always consistent to that we may have at home. Health care facilities are inadequate and sometimes non-existent.  Some medical conditions will require team members to purchase additional insurance that includes air evacuation.
    .
  • Prior to registering for a team, and prior to purchasing airline tickets, a FULL DISCLOSURE of any medical condition must be presented to PRUMC’s Director of Global Missions and PRUMC’s COO.  This includes prior medical conditions, chronic conditions, and any condition that you have been under a doctor’s care for in the past 5 years.
    .
  • Applicants must obtain and complete a physician’s release form (provided by UMVIM via PRUMC), and a letter form you doctor stating acknowledgement of travel plans and their consent to go.
    .
  • Applicant’s disclosure, release and consent will be reviewed by a board and notified within a week of submission of status (either approved or denied.)  PRUMC retains the right to deny any individual a place on a mission team if we feel the mission could be jeopardized in any way.
