We are seeking individuals that have experience with building, home renovation, painting, landscaping, and/or plumbing for this trip. The home we’ll be renovating is pictured above.
Go Be Love has a heart to help missionaries feel seen, known and loved. This trip is going to be a unique opportunity to lay the groundwork for a ministry that will encourage and bless missionaries from around the world!
This team will travel to Budapest, Hungary to partner with two missionary couples whose vision is to transform a house into a Care House that will be a safe haven for missionaries. Approximately 40% of missionaries leave the field during their first term. The goal of this Care House is to provide a place that will help keep missionaries healthy so as to avoid burnout. They plan to do this through hospitality, retreats, and counseling among other things. But before this can happen, the house must be renovated. That is where the Go Be Love team comes in! We are seeking team members who can help renovate this home by installing a small kitchen, moving and adding some doors, painting, and doing landscaping and yard work. The work this team does will benefit missionaries for many years to come!
There will also be a day to experience the beauty of Budapest and enjoy seeing the sights as well! Consider joining this team, it will truly be a life-changing and unforgettable experience.
This is a pioneer trip in that it is our first trip to Budapest. It’s also a work trip as the focus of this team is to get a house ready to become a missionary care center where missionaries from around the world can come to rest and recharge.

Team Member Commitment
I understand that the mission trip starts the day I apply for the trip and agree that, as a part of a Go Be Love mission team, I am committing to being available for conference calls leading up to the trip and reading all emails and materials pertaining to the trip, and responding when necessary. I understand that these communications are needed to maximize the effectiveness of my team on the mission field, to prepare each person for the trip and to build team unity. For some teams, this may include 4 to 8 conference calls leading up to the trip. I understand that a large part of these conference calls will focus on a spiritual preparation and will include doing a pre-trip discipleship study together.
Go Be Love advises all travelers to read the US Department of State background notes on their website. Travelers can also check the latest health information with the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention at http://www.cdc.gov to get the most recent health advisories, immunization recommendations/requirements, and advice on food and drinking water safety for regions and countries. We also suggest that all participants consult their physician before traveling abroad.
Paying for Your Trip
Go Be Love encourages our team members to raise support. Once you are signed up for a trip, you can fundraise with all items on the team member fundraising section of our online store, you can send out support letters or come up with your own creative ideas. We use a team member database called Managed Missions that allows you to create your own custom fundraising page. Unlike other online fundraising pages, those donations will go directly into your trip account and will also be tax deductible for your donors. This feature is called Public Profile and we encourage all team members to create one and send the link to your donors who would like to give online. You and your donors can also make tax deductible payments toward your trip total by mailing checks to Go Be Love.
Flight and Travel Info
One thing that sets Go Be Love mission trips apart is that we book ALL flights for all of our team members, including your domestic connections from your home airport. Please list your home airport on your application. For smaller airports, please give several options for airports you could fly from as sometimes our international airline partners may not have options in and out of smaller airports. Please note: because we will be booking all of your flights and connections and because we do so at the best possible price – this does not always mean the best possible schedule. Many times, the international airlines we use are able to offer us domestic flight connections at a very low cost (usually only $75-$100) and therefore, we are offered a very limited class of service. This might mean longer layover times so please be prepared for this in advance. You may find a better schedule online but that doesn’t mean that it was an option within the price range and class of service we were going for. If you have specific limitations on arrival and departure times, you will need to let us know in writing 90 days or more in advance and you will need to be prepared to incur additional costs if your preferences do not fall within the class of service we are offered at the lowest cost.
