Return Trip to the Field

MKs who were raised on the field may return to visit their parents overseas one time paid for out of the MK Travel Fund.  The intent of this trip is to allow MKs closure and a chance to say goodbye to that chapter in their life.  The criteria for this trip are:

    1. The MK must have graduated from high school and be under the age of 23.

    2. The MK must be returning to the field where they spent at least part of their growing-up
        years.

    3. The MK parent must still be active, appointed A/G missionaries currently working in that
        field.

Approved trips are covered by the MK Travel Fund, which is supported through a standard monthly deduction of $10 from every missionary’s account. Expenses for non-MK spouses are not covered.

To begin processing an MK Return Trip, Missionary parents  should contact their Area Director for approval.
Once the official approvals have been completed, the missionary has two options for purchasing airline tickets for their MK.

    1. You may purchase the airline ticket for your MK’s return trip.  Claim the expense on your
         next quarterly report and the funds will be transferred back to your account from the
         MK travel account.

    2. Contact your Missionary Services representative.  He/she can work directly with your needs
        and with Great Southern Travel to purchase a ticket in your MKs name and bill the MK travel
        account directly.*
