In case it was missed at our initial gathering last weekend, the dates for the actual trip to Nicaragua are March 13-23, 2015 – expect an early start on the 13th and a late return on the 23rd.
At the suggestion of a parent at the Info Session last weekend, a basic forum has been implemented on this website (click the “Forum” link at the top – you won’t be able to see contents until you register). You’ll first need to register a username, then you’ll be able to view and post in discussions. The registration link is in the right-hand column in the subheading called “Users” (beneath the subscription option, which you should definitely use so that you can get updates from the website right away). As the Registrar/Webmaster, my time is fairly limited, so I’d ask that any questions that need answers from me or the committee be directed to the usual email address, info ‘at’ waterlootcow ‘dot’ ca. I would encourage both parents and participants to join in the discussions remembering that tone doesn’t always translate well – use Holy Manners (digitally!) in your conversations!
Letter to Congregations
A heads-up to our participants and leaders – the TCOW organizing committee is going to be sending a letter to congregations introducing their TCOW participant(s), explaining financials, expectations, and how congregations can offer active support. This should be on the way to churches in the coming week.
