A sample trip description from our May 2018 Moldova trip is as follows (the focus for the 2019 trip might change slightly – details coming very soon):
Moldova is an Eastern Europe country that has a great need for training and education in the field of working with special needs children and adults. This trip is specifically designed for social workers (especially those that work with children that have experienced trauma) and those that are experienced with setting up or working in foster care. You also need to be willing to help train Moldovan social workers to better serve this need in their country.
The team will partner with our Moldovan partner, American missionaries David and Barbara Crossman, to host workshops for Moldovan social workers. There will also likely be an opportunity to participate in an outreach with a local church. 1% of the Moldovan population is evangelical (the majority is Orthodox).
COST: Moldova trips are generally around $1700 + 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.
This trip is appropriate for individuals that are either a social worker who works with children that have experienced trauma or an occupational therapist. We are looking for people that are willing to host workshops for Moldovan physical therapists that work with special needs children and social workers that work with children who have experienced trauma.

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.
