Philippines | May 30-June 8, 2019

We have a new opportunity in the Philippines this year that we are excited about! We will be doing a one week medical/dental outreach on a medical boat and traveling to a different island each day to bring care to very remote parts of the Philippines. There are approximately 7,000 islands that are located in the Philippines. Each remote island that we will travel to has a population of around 350 to 2,500. Please join us May 30-June 8, 2019 where we will be partnering with Word of Hope Ministries. This will be an exciting outreach and we would love for you to join us!



During this outreach we will help many of the sick and hurting who would otherwise go without the treatment they need. We will set up a general medical/dental clinic and treat the patients’ needs as they present. We will also pray with all of our patients’ and give them an opportunity to receive Christ. The team will be staying on the boat or in tents on the beach.
