Very Handy But Not Required
- Luggage Locks
It is a good idea to lock your luggage when you leave it at a host family’s house in the jungle. Make sure they are TSA compatible if you have them on your luggage in the airport.
- Ziploc/Plastic bags
great for keeping things organized and dealing with wet gear.
- Snacks (no fresh fruit or vegetables)
- Knife (must go in your checked luggage!)
- Work Gloves (for possibly handling rebar, splintery wood, power tools, etc.)
- Musical Instrument
- Spanish-English/English-Spanish Dictionary
you can purchase this online from Amazon or download one to your phone, tablet, or computer. If you are going with the smartphone/computer option, make sure it operates without an internet connection.
- Spanish-English Bible
Amazon or Christian Book Distributors have Spanish/English Parallel New Testaments or you can download a Spanish Bible to your smartphone. YouVersion has several Spanish options available for download. We recommend Nueva Versión Internacional (NVI).
