step 3 Informational meeting
If you are new to LWS mission trips, please attend the online Informational Meeting. If you have already been on a LWS mission trip, you can skip this meeting, if needed. Here are the dates:
For the June trip to His Ministry: Friday, March 11th, from 4:30-5:30 PM Pacific Time.

If Living Waters Spanishcancels a trip, you are entitled to a full refund of the trip price, minus $75.
If you cancel a trip:
at least two months before your trip departure date, your payment can be applied to a different Living Waters Spanish trip taking place within 18 months of the trip for which you canceled.
less than two months before your trip departure date, 50% of the full trip price can be applied to a future Living Waters Spanish trip taking place within 18 months of the trip for which you canceled. 50% is non-refundable, because if a team member drops out just before a trip begins, there isn't time to find and train a new team member, and one less person will therefore be serving on the trip.
LWS does not require a COVID vaccine for its trips. If you choose not to be vaccinated for COVID and the US or Mexican government requires a COVID vaccine for ground border crossings:
over 30 days before the trip departure date, you will be entitled to a full refund, minus $75 per applicant.
less than 30 days before the trip departure date, you will be entitled to either:
apply your full payment amount toward a future LWS trip within 25 months from your original trip start-date, or
a full refund minus your share of LWS's unrecoverable trip expenses.
