Dates for study tour to Georgia and Armenia are announced.

The Church of the Brethren and Heifer International are jointly sponsoring a Study Tour to Georgia and Armenia on Sept. 17-Oct. 1, 2009. The tour leaders will be Jan Schrock, senior advisor for Heifer International, and Kathleen Campanella, partner and public relations director of the Brethren Service Center in New Windsor, Md.

The tour will begin with several days in Georgia visiting Heifer dairy and rehabilitation projects, with the remaining time spent in Armenia focusing on agricultural developments, youth peace programs, and cultural landmarks. The tour may visit a site of Brethren mission and relief work in the early 1900s.

The cost of $3,500 includes in-country transportation, accommodations, meals, tour guides, workshops, and SOS emergency evacuation insurance. Participants will be responsible for their own air travel to Tbsili, Georgia, and from Yerevan, Armenia. The application process will begin in January.
