We have decided that our trips would not just be expeditions for travel sake, instead each would become a vehicle to lasting and positive change. Our purpose is to make bad situations better, good circumstances great and to promote people who have been marginalized in life.

We are traveling for the journey as much as we are the destination within the context of making a sustainable difference in the lives we reach out to. We want to start by making sure that our focus is on the objective and not so much on our fashion. 

The main dress should be comfortable and cool. Our destination can be very hot during the day (no AC) and sometimes very rainy (tropical rain all day). 

For Church don't worry about impressing anyone. Clean, casual clothes are perfect. 

For most other times, walking around the town or while at the house please dress modest, and comfortable. We will all be in close quarters and we want to all be comfy and mindful of our hosts. 

Please Make Sure all of your belongings fit into ONE Checked Bag and ONE Carry On, Both Should Weigh no more than 50lbs, and you should be able to carry both easily.
