Spain Mission Trip
Radical Hospitality and Evangelism
June 23–July 3, 2017
The Pilgrim’s Fountain, founded by CRU, is a refuge and hostel for pilgrims walking the Camino de Santiago on their journey to Santiago de Compostela. It offers clean restrooms, free meals and beverages, opportunities for prayer and 10 beds each night for visitors. Spend a week this summer in Northwest Spain with HPPC missionaries, Garrick and Dziu Roegner. You will get a chance to put Christ’s love in action through service, conversational evangelism, hospitality and sharing meals with pilgrims from all over the world. Caroline Krause, Urban Coordinator, will lead this trip.
Children ages 6+ are welcome to join this trip with their parents.
For the best rates, please sign up by March 24. After this deadline, the cost of the trip may increase due to airfare.
For more information about this trip, contact Allison Murphy, Missions Coordinator.
What will we be doing on the trip?
We will be doing the daily chores of running the house that includes strip/remake pilgrims beds, laundry, cooking, cleaning bathrooms, serving refreshments and meals. Most importantly we will be able to meet and greet pilgrims and engage them in spiritual conversations. No experience or language skills are necessary!
What are the accommodations?
We will be staying in the Pilgrims’ Fountain. The hostel has very basic and rustic accommodations with limited space. The bunkrooms have bunk beds with a shared bathroom. There is also a small hostel down the road that has small private rooms. These rooms are limited and will add $175 to the cost of the trip.
Will there be any time to do any sightseeing?
Yes, we will spend the first day and a half sightseeing in Santiago and adjusting to the time change. We will also have a day to go into the city of Lugo to shop and see some of the sights. Our last night in Santiago before we fly out we will go out for a fun final team dinner and debriefing.
Will I need vaccinations or immunizations?
Check the vaccines and medicines list at cdc.org/travel. Visit your doctor or local clinic (ideally, 4-6 weeks) before your trip to get vaccines or any medications you may need.
