Journal - It 's not everyone 's thing but if you do it, you 'll definitely want to bring it on an adventure like this!
Bible - It is a missions trip after all.
Plug Adapter - Depends on what country you are going to and where you are staying. My team stays in a hotel so I won 't need one. If you plan on bringing a hair dryer, though it is good to have one.
Camera - And any batteries/charger/SD cards you 'll need.
Polaroid - Most of the kids in the villages have never actually seen what they look like, other then reflections in the water. iPod - For pictures because my phone camera has got the wiggins and won 't work.
Water Bottle - Having your own plastic one just makes it easier to know which ones yours.

Meds / First Aid

Antihistamine - Allergy
