The Abraham Project is blessed each year as it hosts 10 to 15 short-term mission teams from the United States. Our teams come from all over the United States and it is an honor to get to know each individual that comes to serve alongside us. The needs of the Abraham Project are great and mission teams are seen as the Lord’s provision to accomplish what He has called this community to do. We would love to hear from you if you have a group of eight or more people interested in coming down to Costa Rica to serve alongside us. We ask that our groups be flexible, organized, and willing to serve in our areas of greatest need.
Below is a list of estimated expenses for the mission team:
The average cost for a team to come for one week to the Abraham Project is approximately $550 – $650 per person. This amount includes all the group’s expenses except for mandatory evacuation insurance for each group member, airfare, miscellaneous personal expenses, souvenirs, and tips for drivers, baggage handlers at the airport, etc. The amount above is heavily influenced by group size, amount of traveling the group does, and the fun day activity that is chosen.
**Please see “note on expenses” in the team leader forms.
Medical Insurance: We require each team member to purchase insurance. The insurance that you purchase for the team must cover overseas medical emergencies and evacuation. The plan should include repatriation, which is basically emergency medical transportation back to the states in severe cases – even cases involving death while out of the country. Some teams in the past have used the Missionary Insurance Group, Inc. (see letter below). Please inform the Abraham Project Team Coordinator which insurance company you choose, with details of its coverage, before you come to Costa Rica.
