To-Do List 1. Make photocopy of passport and send to: Rose International Ministries 1191 Rabe Way Carson City, NV 89701 If you cannot have it to Rose International by Monday, 19 October, then bring it with you. 2. Send release to Rose International Ministries if you have not already done so. 3. Send email containing emergency contact information and health issues I need to know about to: Tyson@roseinternationalministries.org 4. Bring U$5 for entry into Nicaragua. Packing List You may check your bag if you prefer. I always carry my bag onto the aircraft so I know it will arrive. Either way you are limited to NO MORE than 35lbs. This weight restriction is due to the domestic flight to Bluefields. You may also carry a personal item (i.e. small back pack, purse, hand bag, etc.). 1. Your signed PASSPORT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2. Bible 3. Note book, pens or pencil 4. Money for any food, etcetera that you may purchase while traveling, and for anything you might want outside of meals like snacks, sodas, bottled waters, etc. (avg. price soda U$.75, water U$1). If you find something to buy in Nicaragua or their airport, you will want to carry money for this as well. 5. Clothes – we are gone for 8 days and 2 travel days – shorts are acceptable during the day. As before, modesty, Biblical awareness, cultural awareness, and your personal walk will determine what you will pack. I would recommend nothing shorter than the “old” finger tip rule or below mid-thigh. No shirts that show undergarments! 6. There will be at least three church services. Girls pack enough skirts/dresses for church (no shorter than the knee). Guys pack pants and decent shirts. 7. Bath Towel 8. Shower sandals if you prefer 9. All liquids and gels must be less than 3oz if carrying on and they must fit, sealed in a 1 quart zip top bag!!! 10. Hand sanitizer is always a good idea for new travelers. 11. Mosquitoes are controlled by the local authorities and world health organizations, but they cannot kill them all. If you are concerned about mosquitoes bring bug spray. If you are concerned about malaria, there are tablets available at pharmacies that are to be taken as directed. 12. Camera if you desire 13. I may have left things off of this list!!! Think about what you would pack for any trip you might take. In the event of forgotten items, things can always be purchased there. 14. Leave a jacket or sweater with whoever will pick you up returning home. It is that time of year. **Final comment – it rains in Bluefields…A LOT. Keep this in mind.
