Hello and thank you for considering to be a part of the 2015 Mission of Hope Team traveling to the Philippines. We have a great trip planned with many projects to be involved in. Mission of Hope – Philippines offers an exciting opportunity to serve others at two Adventist schools in the Philippines: The Adventist University of the Philippines and Central Philippine Adventist College. Both are student boarding schools. The Lord has blessed our team over the last 6 years as we have helped build relationships with the “working students” , helping them with material and scholastic needs and mentoring to them giving them Inspiration and Hope. If you have never been on a mission trip, you may be surprised to see what God can do when you sacrifice your time, money, and self to follow His plans and go where He leads you.
In 2014, our main focus was small group bonding. To give an opportunity for the Mission of Hope team to learn more about the underlying trials and obstacles that hinder the forward progress of students reaching graduation on a quicker time table. Our eyes were opened to the immediate and urgent needs of these students. We also had the opportunity to mentor, sing, and worship with over 800 students! Mission of Hope CEO, Teresa Quirante is actively working with key partners to implement solutions to these urgent needs on a short term and long term basis. Visit our website often for updates!
The 2015 Trip is scheduled for April 1—14, 2015. Additional information about the trip will be provided as plans are finalized. The projects that we will be focusing on this year include:
1. SNAP— Student Nutrition Assistance Program
3. School Supplies and Personal Care Items
4. School Uniforms
5. Devotional Books and Bibles
6. Mega Party
The cost for this trip includes airfare, ground transfers, accommodations, food, and project fees. Trip costs do not include airport snacks or souvenirs.
Trip Date: April 1-14, 2015
This is going to be another fantastic year with many projects planned. There are over 825 students that we will be working with this year. This is truly a trip of a life time! The experiences you will have will become memories forever. The lives you will touch will forever be changed. We hope that you will choose to join us for this amazing trip to the Philippines.
