Waiver of Liablility
The undersigned does hereby consent to take part in the noted activity organized by Puente de Amistad, a ministry of Open Bible Standard Churches, a religious, non-profit corporation. I have been informed that a foreign country is very different from the United States. I have been apprised that there are risks politically, militarily, culturally, safety-wise, and health-wise and that problems in any or all of these areas may arise during this mission trip. I have been apprised that, in Tijuana, Mexico, there is currently an added risk of rapid kidnappings and other violent crimes, which are mainly related to criminal activity with drug cartels. In addition, I have been apprised that the threat of terrorism against Americans increases on foreign soil. I am also aware of the threat of terrorism in air travel both from American and foreign airports. I also understand that this trip will involve mission activities, sporting activities, and interaction directly with people while on this trip. I am willing to assume responsibility for my own health and safety while traveling to and from the mission trip destination. I agree to assume all expenses occasioned by any injury or loss and do wholly release Open Bible Standard Churches and Puente de Amistad from any responsibility or liability, and waive any claims or causes of action against it, its agents, employees, and volunteer assistants that may arise on account of any loss, injury, or expense occasioned by any sort of accident or other circumstances involving any foreign or travel risk and agree to hold harmless Open Bible Standard Churches and Puente de Amistad in the event any such claims should arise.
The undersigned agrees to abide by the rules and regulations, supervision, and discipline set and applied by Open Bible Standard Churches, Puente de Amistad, and its agents and does hereby authorize Puente de Amistad or its staff members or other agents to arrange for and consent to x-ray examinations, anesthetic, dental, medical, or surgical diagnosis, and treatment, and hold harmless Puente de Amistad and Open Bible Standard Churches from any such. The undersigned will furnish payment or insurance for any such treatments at his/her own expense. I have read the above waiver of liability and completed the medical information. I understand its content and import and agree to its provisions. I hereby declare this release and Waiver of Liability form is executed without reliance upon any statement or representation of Open Bible Standard Churches or Puente de Amistad or any agent, employee, or volunteer thereof and the execution is made voluntarily and knowingly.
Important Advisory: Individuals traveling to a foreign country and reentering the U.S. are advised that having illegal substances (drugs) or illegal merchandise in their possession will subject them to severe penalties including fines and imprisonment as prescribed by each country. Violation of such laws overseas often results in automatic and lengthy prison terms.
