Colombia Trip - El Reten/Surprise 2 - FULL - Mission Trip

CCV will be sending a small team of active child sponsors to El Reten, Colombia to visit the church plant community that CCV Surprise partners with. 

As a Child sponsor, the child you sponsor will be BROUGHT TO VISIT YOU. It doesn't matter where in Colombia they are, the Compassion team will arrange their travel. 

The team will have the opportunity to visit the community, do home visits, attend classes and church with the kids in the community and do children's activities with the whole group. 

As an active child sponsor, you will have the privilege of spending a full day with the child you sponsor in Colombia. 

Trip dates: October 2-7, 2019
