NEVER wander off or go exploring by yourself. Africa Fire Mission staff and trip leader are the recognized authorities on the trip. Any insubordination toward AFM staff, trip leader or AFM partners may result in immediate termination of your mission trip and you will be sent home at your expense.

This may mean eating food you are unfamiliar with or participating in foreign customs. Embrace the opportunities to learn about a new culture - complaining about or comparing the differences from U.S. culture is not beneficial to the experience.

The exchange of personal information with nationals is not permitted without team leader approval. This can create an expectation of ongoing support that may be detrimental to AFM’s ongoing mission.
