The ministry locations for this trip are the capital city Manila and the island of Cebu. Cebu is among the top five areas in the Philippines where child prostitution and sex tourism are prevalent.
This trip is equally about loving people in practical ways and ministering to their spiritual needs. You will get to minister to disadvantaged children, youth and adults, as well as to fellow believers of all ages. Come with the mission to love people with the Father’s heart. We want you to bring who you are, your passion and your gift mix to pour out in the Philippines!
On this Hero Holiday you will get to:*
- Be part of a ministry team at a conference and at local churches – Preach, teach, pray, and prophesy
- Experience what life looks like in the slums. Do village outreach, home visits, pray for people and participate in a children’s discipleship program
- Join in a day program – feed, play with and pray for street children
- Minister to prostitutes in Metro Manila or Angeles, a brothel city north of Manila or in other areas.
