Dear Friends of Messiah Project,
I am so pleased to report that Ballet Excelsior has confirmed their dance ensemble of 8 with 4 to 6 assistants are signed and ready to go on the tour. I am in touch with our ministry team in Mongolia and they also are making preparations. We must firm up our vocal ensemble and travelers as soon as possible. Air fare rates are fluctuating quite a bit and it is difficult to tie down reasonable rates and schedules that are expeditious.
Following is a brief update and outline of the tour.
We will go through Beijing on our way to Ulaanbaatar. I travel to Ulaanbaatar the first of March at which time I will firm up many details and day to day activities. The cost right now is $3100 which includes air from Chicago to Beijing and then on to Ulaanbaatar and return. It also includes ground transportation, 4 to 5 tours of significant sites in Beijing and Mongolia. We will be staying in 3 to 4 star hotels with breakfast included. The cost also includes all the ministry expenses for the concerts. Please be advised that all funds donated towards your ministry tour are tax deductible to you or anyone who donates towards the mission. The funds are not refundable. In order to secure the group rates I must have a non-refundable deposit of $250 as soon as possible. If you have points or want simply to meet us in Beijing the cost will be about $2150. Please be advised that the final cost cannot be determined until we book the airline tickets.
Please advise if you are going as a tourist or if you want to be a part of the choir or orchestra.
