The Philippine tourism slogan is “It's more fun in the Philippines,” so for sure, while you work & minister, you will have fun getting to know the Filipinos of Camiguin and Socorro Island. These beautiful islands with their hospitable people are common tourist destinations, but few are going there to share the gospel. Most on these islands are very religious but are still not sure of their salvation. As a team, you will work together, spending time in villages, learning about culture, sharing your lives & sharing the gospel through testimonies, drama, sports & music. The large group of students & leaders will be divided into 2 separate ministry teams, one going to each location. Final decisions regarding destination will be made by mid-April at which time you'll be introduced to your team members & leaders. The Philippines is still a harvest field so come help us harvest!. The Philippines is also becoming a harvest force. Through your ministry, you will help encourage the local churches in making disciples and becoming better senders. Your team will spend off days swimming at a local beach, in a natural cold spring or underneath a 160’ waterfall. You may even get to hike to the top of Hibok-Hibok mountain, which is still an active volcano! After being accepted to this project, students & adult leaders will be assigned to their final destination. Adults will be required to complete pre-field leader training (via email/on-line). There will be preparation assignments before attending orientation from June 8-June 11 at the Nehemiah Teams Training Center in Mentone, Alabama. From orientation, your team will be transported directly to the Atlanta airport where you will travel to your final destination. Your team will join other Nehemiah Teams for a joint debrief in Alabama at the end of your trip.
