JNN Foundation will take care of all the logistics, visas, work permits and licenses so that your time is well spent working providing medical care.  JNN will also purchase the insurance, and arrange all meals, housing, ground transportation and projects.

Accommodations

JNN will seek suitable accommodations that are secure and provides comfortable amenities.  Accommodations may be simple and rustic, but comfortable.

Weekly Itinerary

The weekly itinerary consists of:

  • Saturday: Church and concert activities
  • Sunday: Orientation, prep for the week, meet the children, walk through town
  • Monday – Thursday: Camp and work, special evening activities
  • Friday: Cultural morning activity, buffet lunch, sight-seeing

Before You Travel…

We strongly recommend reading our List of Key Considerations before embarking on your missionary trip.

The Ten Guidelines

JNN Foundation has outlined The Ten Guidelines that will aid your mission and help you and our organization to be successful.

Sample Support Letter

Provided is a Sample Letter that you may use for soliciting support, outreach and awareness of your missionary trip. In your letter, try to include the following:

  • Information about the dates, destination, and nature of the medical project you will participate in.
  • Why you are going and what the team will be working to accomplish.
  • The cost of your trip and how they can help.
  • A request for their partnership through prayerful and financial support.

Raising Support

MMI projects are beautiful team efforts. And raising support for your medical mission trip is a great way to expand your team. It is important to remember that the objective is not just to raise money; it is to allow others to partner with you in this ministry.  Allowing others to partner with you in ministry – and not simply raising funds to go. We approach all we do with an intentional focus on PEOPLE: the project participant, the patient on the field, AND even the donors at home who helped get you to the field. So please know how important it is to us to dignify fully everyone across the landscape of the entire JNN Foundation team – both you and everyone who makes your efforts successful! If you are part of a group of project participants from the same church or community, make the most of your efforts by working together as a team to raise support. As you begin this faith-building process, please follow the ten guidelines listed below for raising ministry support.
