Commanded to LOVE!

There is nothing better than making a difference and YOU being a part of it. The feeling of helping is incredible. When we go on missions we are not only helping but doing what God always commanded us to do. To go! To reach out, to make a difference, to help, to love and care. To shine our light, the hope we have found in Jesus as Saviour and friend. We must go into all the world…

Since we went last year two major natural disasters have happened. A massive earthquake and of course one of the biggest typhoons in history swept right across the Philippines and right over the top of our island Malapascua. Miraculously even though the island was flattened no one was killed in the storm. Cebu was badly affected too. This year we go back to help when the media has all faded. We go to stand with our brothers and sisters in the Philippines and continue to help in whatever small ways we can.

We need your help…

Below is a brief outline of some of the different things we’ll be doing. A lot more details will be added as we get closer to the time. This is the nature of mission and the people within. Sometimes it doesn’t all go to plan but you can be sure it did in God’s plan.

This trip will change your life forever and you’ll grow and be stretched in ways you never thought possible. You will get all the experiences and emotions you ever want. So if you can come, then come, because God has already said go!
