Each year OGHS hosts an educational mission trip to help interested members of our local churches see first-hand how OGHS makes a difference in the world.

The next Educational Travel experience will be to the Northern Triangle (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador). The trip will show the situation of immigrants from Central America on their passage to Mexico and the United States. The work being highlighted is the work done through partner organizations of Global Ministries, and supported by One Great Hour of Sharing of the United Church of Christ.

In the final three days of the trip we will engage with US Border Ministries to learn more about their work, which is also supported by the One Great Hour of Sharing offering.

The cost of this trip is $3,750 (double occupancy), $4,000 (single occupancy). The cost will cover all air and ground transportation, food, and lodging. Deposits of $1,500 are due July 15 and will be needed to hold your space.

This experience will focus on gaining a better understanding of the people, region, issues and partners in all three areas.

Contact oghs@ucc.org for more information or to pay your deposit by phone! Otherwise, checks may be mailed and made payable to the United Church of Christ, 700 Prospect Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44115-1100, with OGHS 2017 Travel in the memo line.

This trip is not a fundraiser. It is designed to introduce the One Great Hour of Sharing Endowment Fund and the need for on-going enduring generous support to the Missions of the United Church of Christ. Deposits are non-refundable, unless the trip is cancelled from the host.  Visit: www.ucc.org/oghs_endowment for information about the OGHS Fund.
