A sample trip description from a summer 2018 Mexico trip is as follows:
Join us to Go Be Love in Monterrey, Mexico! The team will fly direct to Monterrey and will spend the week serving in small villages just outside of the city. We will partner with Casa Samuel. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in feeding programs, community outreach, and will serve in several local elementary schools and kindergartens. The week will wrap with our team hosting a large, community-wide festival for local families. This trip will provide many opportunities to share the gospel, to work with children, and to serve people and communities in desperate need.
This team will mainly be working in the colony of Renacimiento. It is a colony that was resettled after a fire tore through the original colony. It is made up of about 1000 family groups. It is an area of extreme poverty. Hunger and malnutrition are huge problems and the effects are seen among the school children. During the week in July we will have the opportunity to work alongside Pastor Eva and her team to feed the hungry in Renacimiento as well as in a neighboring colony which is even more impoverished than Renacimiento. We will also be doing some evangelism in the two colonies, inviting them to an event at the end of the week where we will all worship together and teach about the love of Christ. There will also be plenty of opportunities to love on the beautiful children and women who live there. These people are mostly forgotten, even by their own country. We will have the opportunity to let them know they are seen, known and loved. Join us!
COST: Mexico trips are generally around $1400 + airfare. This may vary slightly depending on how long the trip is and what the itinerary includes.
Introductory- This trip is great for both first-timers and those that have been on many trips. Because travel time is relatively short, this trip is a great way to serve in a time that fits your schedule.

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.
