SHORT TERM APPLICATION
After you have placed your deposit ABC requests that you fill out a short term mission trip application. This will give us basic information to help purchase your plane ticket.
You will need to visit the Mississippi State Department of Health. The address is 570 E Woodrow Wilson Ave Jackson, MS 39216. Its the old Jackson Mall. You will need a overseas "yellow book" or record to show when you land in Malawi.
Your best chances to get in and out quickley is to arrive when it opens at 7:30.
If your child is under 18 you must accompany them. If you are not in the Mississippi state system for shot records then bring your records with you.

To receive Malaria medication you are going to need a prescription from a doctor.
Please remember we do not want you to use Larium or Mefloquine. We prefer you to use Malarone or Doxycycline. Doxy is an antibiotic that many short term teams use. It is effective for anti-malaria and helps with stomach bugs or other issues overseas. We recommend this but please be aware if you are fair skinned the sun can effect you.
We also recommend that you take Airborne while traveling.
Bring travel hand sanitizer and sanitizer wipes.
