Mission trip to Africa

Organized by: Dean Van Elderen

Hello, my name is Dean and I just graduated from Kalamazoo Christian High School in Kalamazoo michigan. This last Friday, the 15th of July, I was supposed to fly out of Chicago with a group of classmates and teachers to fly to Kenya to go and help at a middle school and high school. But before our flight took off, a military coup took place in Turkey, which is where our connecting flight was, and made it very unsafe for us to travel there. The US said for US citizens to not travel there if we had the option so our group decided to not go on the flight even though the flight was still going to go. We thought it was too dangerous for us but the Turkish Airlines was being very unhelpful and couldn't understand why we weren't going to go. So now they are making it very difficult for us to rebook or get refunded, so I would be very grateful to any donations that anyone could make for rebooking. Every little bit helps. God Bless.
