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. For each group of 5 students, there will be 1 adult leader (21 years or older). Adults leaders may be from the students church or they may be recruited from former Nehemiah Teams participants. Final decisions regarding destination will be made by mid-April when you'll be introduced to your team members & leaders. Adult leaders will be required to complete pre-field leader training (via email/on-line). Participants will have preparation assignments before attending orientation at the Nehemiah Teams Training Center on June 1-5 in Mentone, Alabama. Participants will be taken directly to the Atlanta airport from orientation to begin their travel to their final destination. There will be an on-field debrief before returning home.
