2019 Youth Hostel Mission Trip - Join Us!
Plans are being made for our Summer 2019 visit to the Khunyuam Christian Youth Hostel. Somphet and Sangduan have invited us to stay with them for a 12 day period of time. The dates are not finalized but will they will be a 12 day period of time between July 15 and July 30, 2019. We will decide our final dates based on who plans to travel and what dates provide the most reasonable air fares. In the past the total cost has been between $1500.00 and $2000.00. We will purchase our plane tickets in May of 2019 so you have almost a full year to raise those funds. You will have more than a year to raise funds for food, lodging and ground travel (about $250.00) while in Thailand. Our project will be decided once we have a feel for who will be traveling with us and how much that group would like to raise for the cost of a project. Please let Mike know ASAP if you plan to travel with us! You can contact Mike at 715-210-5405 or Mike@LandmarkChristianChurch.com
Youth Hostel Sponsorship
Beginning January 1, 2017 a change will be made to the Youth Hostel Sponsorship Program that is administered here at Landmark Christian Church. It is important for current sponsors to know that you are “Grandfathered” in to the current program if that is your desire.
The following change will be made for new sponsors and those that are current sponsors that choose to make the change. The cost of sponsorship will raise from $10.00 per month to $15.00 per month. The funds will be used as follows: $5.00 for meals, $2.50 for maintaince items at the hostel, , $2.50 to your child, $2.00 into a travel fund so that 2 children per year can visit Landmark, $2.00 into the Jan L Hinch Memorial fund to help pay for college and $1.00 for a Christmas present.
For sake of comparison -Compassion International asks for $38.00 per month, World Vision is $39.00 per month, Save the Children is $30.00 per month.
We know that our funds are well spent at the Youth Hostel – as the children receive a Public School education, Christian education, church leadership training, and so much more. The changes will encourage the children to study English, provide then a chance to visit us, help continue their education, and provide them a Christmas present.
