We have been informed that a foreign country is very different from the United States. We 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. We 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, we have been apprised that the threat of terrorism against Americans increases on foreign soil. We are also aware of the threat of terrorism in air travel both from American and foreign airports. We also understand that this trip will involve mission activities, sporting activities and interacting directly with the people while on this trip. Having been so informed we give our permission for our son/daughter or ward to participate in the above named mission trip and we agree to assume all expenses occasioned by any injury or loss.
The undersigned participant agrees to abide by and the undersigned parent or guardian agrees that the participant is bound by the rules and regulations, supervision, and discipline set and applied by Open Bible Standard Churches and Puente de Amistad and its agents and the undersigned parent/guardian 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 for his or her son, daughter, or ward.
The undersigned parent/guardian will furnish payment or insurance for any such treatments, at his/her own expense.
We have read the above and completed the medical information; we understand its content and import and agree to its provisions.

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.
