One of my sponsored children lives in Ethiopia. A couple weeks ago there was listed a future trip to Ethiopia--it hadn't opened yet. It's no longer listed. What happened?

Hi Linda! Were you considering signing up for this trip? :) 

It's possible that our visits department temporarily removed it if it needed updated however, I'm checking with them to make sure. I'll let you know what I find out and if the trip will be posted again.

I noticed this too (about the Ethiopia trip) and was wondering about it. I also noticed the same for a Guatemala trip in July, 2016; it had been listed and now is gone from the list.

Anne, the dates for the Guatemala tour look like they have changed. I just checked our website and we have a tour going to Guatemala in March of 2016 instead of July now. You can see the tour information, here.

Linda, regrettably, our visits department confirmed with me that the Ethiopia tour for 2016 is being re-scheduled but we don't yet know when that will be as they're still working on the dates. I'm so sorry for any inconvenience! Please know however, that you're always welcome to plan a custom visit or you can certainly wait for the next tour to Ethiopia to open up :).

Emily, is there any way to find out the tentative dates or cost of the Honduras Oct 2016 trip and the Bolivia Nov 2016 trip? That would be helpful if there is a way to find that out. Thanks!

Hi Hilary! You can see this information on our group tours page.

I have also attached screen shots below with the costs and dates of the Honduras trip but we don't yet have information on specific dates and costs for Bolivia. These details are still being hashed out but we'll open the registration in February :). The Honduras trip advertised on our page is for November of 2016. We also have a tentative one for June of 2016.







Are you thinking of going on both the Honduras and Bolivia tour or just trying to decide on one? How exciting!

I am really wanting to go to Bolivia in Nov 2016 because my Rosa is scheduled to graduate in 2017 and my Bolivian visa expires in 2017. But I don't want to get my hopes up if it is going to be too expensive :). I'm praying that God will make a way! I had been hoping to use my advocate discount to make it affordable, but I just heard that they don't do that anymore unfortunately.

I definitely won't be able to afford the June 2016 Bolivia tour, but I'm hopeful that maybe the one scheduled for Nov 2016 will be a bit cheaper. It may be wishful thinking, but I would love to see my Rosa again before she graduates. I was able to visit her in April 2012, and have been praying for the opportunity to visit her again.
