Dates: June 17 - July 13 Field cost: $1200 plus roundtrip airfare, required travel insurance, passport & visa costs.
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 Island. This beautiful island with its’ hospitable people is a common tourist destination, but few are going there to share the gospel. Most on this island are very religious but are still not sure of their salvation. As a team, you will work together to help build a local camp, and will spend time in villages, learning about culture, sharing your lives & sharing the gospel through testimonies, drama, sports & music.
The Philippines is still a harvest field so come help us harvest on Camiguin Island. 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 placed on ministry & work teams of 10-12. Adults will be required to complete pre-field leader training (via email/on-line). Each family group will have preparation assignments before attending orientation from June 17-June 21 at the Nehemiah Teams Training Center in Mentone, Alabama. From orientation, your team will be transported directly to the Atlanta airport. Your final destination will be Camiguin island. From the airport, you will ride a “jeepney” to the campground or hostel. From this “base camp” you will minister in at least 4 villages for the next 18 days. There will be a 2 day on-field debrief before flying home to America.
A 3-week opportunity for high school students ages 14-18 with their adult leaders.
Field cost of $1200 per person PLUS round trip airfare, passport & visa costs, immunizations & required travel insurance.
