If you're going to spend a week with SuNica, it may be necessary to shift your paradigm. More than any actual work you may do, your greatest takeaway will come from standing in solidarity with people in genuine, sometimes desperate need. You might not be able to change Nicaragua in one week, but Nicaragua is sure to change you.

What to Expect

While we may spend a day or two doing a service project, your mindset during a SuNica trip should be that of a student. You can assume that you'll go where God wants you to go, do what someone else asks you to do, and try to eat what's put in front of you.

You'll be introduced to different types of people and exposed to some very authentic environments. We want you to experience an unfiltered Nicaragua and understand some of the complexities that come with working in a different country. 

 

During a SuNica trip, we want you to:  

  • Get to know our local staff
  • Visit the places where SuNica projects are happening
  • See material poverty in a very real way
  • Witness spiritual and material poverty as an equal contributor to human brokenness.
  • Meet and interact with the children that we are serving.
  • Meet and interact with the children that we are serving.
  • Hang out with some of the young people involved in our Discipleship programs. 

We'd love for you to come home as an advocate for SuNica. We hope more than anything that you would return home inspired to do something about spiritual & material poverty, if not with SuNica, then perhaps with another ministry, or even in your own neighborhood.

Release of Liability and Release to Obtain Medical Care

Matthew 18:15-20 and 1 Corinthians 6:1-8 instruct us to live at peace and to resolve disputes in private or within the Christian church. Agreeing with this, I acknowledge my concern that the limited charitable resources of SuNica should not be dissipated on wasteful litigation. Therefore, I expressly waive my right to file a lawsuit for any reason in any civil court or other secular setting against SuNica, other nonprofit organizations and all individuals involved with this mission trip.

I realize that there are hazards, and I am fully assuming these risks which include but are not limited to: hazardous travel, poorly constructed roads, dangers resulting from military or political activities, sickness, disease, inadequate health care, kidnapping, arbitrary imprisonment, and all other unforeseen risks. I specifically release SuNica and all others concerned from any claim of negligence in their duties as leaders, or otherwise, on this mission trip. In the event that I attempt to make a claim in violation of my release and waiver as herein indicated I hereby agree to, and shall pay, all legal fees and costs incurred by SuNica and other individuals and organizations involved. I further agree that such claim or dispute arising from or related to this trip shall be settled by biblically based mediation as specifically described in the then-current Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation of the Institute for Christian Conciliation (http://www.peacemaker.net/ICC), and if not resolved by said mediation, then by legally binding arbitration in accordance with the aforementioned Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation.

I hereby further acknowledge my responsibility to provide my own insurance coverage of any and all types, including but not limited to medical, hospitalization, life, disability, lost baggage, lost or stolen personal property, and any and all other insurance which I may need or desire. I also hereby release SuNica and all leaders and nonprofit organizations involved with this mission trip from responsibility to provide insurance coverage of any and all types. I hereby further authorize the leadership of SuNica to make essential decisions on my behalf with respect to medical treatment, emergency surgery, or hospitalization, should such be necessary. However, SuNica shall in no way be responsible or liable for payment of any and all bills for such medical treatment. I assume the full responsibility for any and all medical bills incurred during or in relation to this mission trip. I further agree wholeheartedly to abide by decisions made by leaders and those in authority and by all guidelines, policies, and rules pertaining to this trip.

I have read and I am in full agreement with this release and waiver, and fully understand that I am: waiving any rights I may have to litigate and sue and instead accepting biblically-based mediation to resolve disputes; accepting full responsibility for all insurance, all medical costs, and all risks related to this trip; authorizing SuNica leaders to make medical decisions if necessary; and agreeing to read and abide by all guidelines, policies, rules, and leadership decisions pertaining to this mission trip. I certify that all the information I have given on this form is accurate and true to the best of my knowledge.
