Let's begin this Road to Emmaus today! Here are the next steps...

Preparation Checklist

this week
  1. COMMUNICATION: We’ll add you to a GroupMe to notify when we send emails, for deadline or date reminders, etc. Please don’t send responses or messages to the group as a whole. Please read carefully the webpage updates emails, either from beatitudesinfo@g (Nate), beatitudesmissions@g, or anthony.beatitudes@g (Fr. Anthony).

  2. PURCHASE FLIGHTS! Prices will likely rise as we purchase them, so the sooner you purchase, the lower the price. WE WILL TELL YOU SOON THE EXACT FLIGHT TO PURCHASE FOR ARRIVAL. DEPARTURE IS ANYTIME AFTER 12PM ON MAY 23. It is up to you how much baggage to add and whether you want to add insurance. Put as many essentials as possible into your carry-on, in case the suitcase comes late! Your medical coverage is included under your Gaming coverage, so if you purchase flight insurance, this is mainly to change or reimburse your flight more easily if problems come up. In case of cancellation, Beatitudes Missions will refund for the trip according to the percentage on the policy listed on our site, however we will not refund your deposit or your flight.

  3. Once you purchase, please email to us a screenshot of your BOOKING, including the dates, times, and booking number. Rename the file "Flight YOUR NAME." Please also email us a photo of your PASSPORT, file labeled "ppt YOUR NAME."

  1. FUNDRAISING (optional): here are tips and the model of a letter you are welcome to send to friends and family. You can add your name to it, or ask us to do so and we’ll send you a pdf.  

  2. Mark your calendar to JOIN our preparation zooms: times TBA.​​

  3. Read through our Safety information & submit this SAFETY WAIVER.

  4. Gaming will be organizing transportation to and from Vienna, which may involve additional costs. ​Download the Maps.Me app on your phone, zoom in & download all maps in Israel, Lebanon, or France for offline navigation.

  5. Download WHATSAPP on your phone.

  6. PACK your bags following this guide. We are checking and will tell you baggage allowances, to see how long your backpack spine can be for you to carry it on. Checked baggage and carry-ons will both have a fee on the low-cost airlines. If you have a sleeping bag, please bring it. We'll survey you at the end of July to see who still wants to borrow an item from us. 

  7. Have this form downloaded on your phone for the passport control upon arrival in Tel Aviv. You probably will not need it.
