Are you ready? 

Dear *|FNAME|* *|LNAME|*:

Greetings in Christ from La Ciudad Vieja, Guatemala!
Before I forget...
Would you please add this email address ( to your CONTACTS and email ADDRESS BOOK right now?

I will be emailing you several times over the next 2 weeks with important mission details, and I don't want you to miss a thing!  Gracias!
Damaris and I are here in Guatemala finalizing our mission preparations for the summer.  We can't wait for you to meet all of our dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ!
But, before you do that, we need to purchase your flights!
If you have already paid your $800/person mission registration deposit that was due May 1st, we will be attempting to purchase your flights THIS WEEK.  
Our awesome travel agency, Velocity Tours, already has all of your contact information that you provided us on your Online Registration form, and they are hard at work finding the best route, and cheapest flights for you and/or your group.
However, we need your help to make this process go as smoothly as possible.  

Here's how it works:

(It's like a dance, or a call and response song, or psalmody - your parts are in bold):
  • You fill out our Online Registration Form (if you are receiving this email, you've done this successfully!)
  • You pay your $800/person registration deposit on our Sponsor a Volunteer page
  • Our Travel agency, Velocity Tours will contact you directly with an email and/or phone call (sample email below)
  • You confirm your travel details with Velocity Tours within 24 hrs of receiving their message
  • We purchase your flights
  • You come to Guatemala to love and serve the Lord and His Children!
If you are flying with a group, all group members need to confirm their flight details before flights for the entire group are purchased.  Again, Velocity Tours will contact you directly to confirm your flight details.

If you have not paid your $800/person, please do this immediately to avoid any penalty charges.  

If we receive your $800/person after May 1st, and your flight cost exceeds our mission budget of $800/ticket, we will need to pass the extra flight expense on to you.  

If you haven't done so already, please get your $800/person payment in now to avoid these extra expenses.  You can make your payment at:

Our Mission Travel Agency
