Philippines / Hong Kong

Philippines Mission Trip

Spend your summer halfway around the world in the Philippines, a land of over 7,000 islands. Following your training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight to Los Angeles. From there a connecting flight takes you across the Pacific Ocean and the International Date Line to Manila, Philippines. From Manila you will connect with a flight to Butuan City on the island of Mindanao. A 30-minute bus ride will take you to the Philippines Street Children’s Ministry. Every day you will minister to these kids who are hurting in many ways.

Philippines Mission Trip

You will share puppets and drama with the street children and may have the opportunity to take food to those who often only get one meal a day. After your time in Butuan, your Philippines mission trip is scheduled to continue at the Teen Missions in the Philippines Bible, Missionary & Work Training Center near Buena Vista. You will be a huge blessing to the staff and students as you help finish construction of additional dorms for the retreat center that helps provide operating funds for the school. You will have the chance to swim in the Bohol Sea, which you can see from the base. While at the base, you will be sleeping in dorms with showers. After your project time, you return to Hong Kong for an overnight hotel stay, and shopping in one of the world’s best Chinese night markets for those last-minute souvenirs.

  25. I don’t understand this paper work it says it has to be notarized but it also needs to be sent in to day how does that work.

    • Elizabeth, Yes, BOTH Health Status Forms need to be notarized (make sure the back are signed also). You can do it as soon as possible and send them in. You take the forms to a notary (at a library, bank or business) and get them notarized.

  26. Okay, here is the facebook group! 😀 Please send me a friend request and message so I know who you are, and I shall add you to the group. 😀

    • Julia, Yes, you have to go to Boot Camp and complete the team by attending Debrief. That is the time where the team bonds and you are trained. You will go to your country after Boot Camp.

  32. I am a FTM but did a work team the last time. How long is the EV part of the project for this trip? Also, how many girl spots do you have left, or is it filled up? My parents are still thinking about it, but it is looking positive!

  33. Actually, there is no need to answer my last question. 😛 Sorry. We ended up being able to get the photo printed and sending with the form. It’s in the mail now! Hopefully it gets there in time!

  34. What is the date for the Commissioning Service for Super Boot camp? Thanks!

    • Rose, Go ahead and register online and then you can call the office and pay with a credit card or checking information. If that won’t work, email me and I will email a registration form to you.

  44. Thank YOU.

    We’re going to be the party team after all.

  50. Hi Mrs. Beth. I Prayed for a while about which trip I shoud go on and I remembered you saying something about this trip on the phone and im really starting to think about this one. I was just wondering how much room there is left because my parents still havnt gave me permission to sign up and i dont want it to get filled up like australia.


  51. Neilson, Christianne

    Hi! Are there showers available during the whole stay in the Philipines or only at the training center?

  52. Hey I really feel led to go here but when do the spots ussually get full for trips like these?

  53. It would be pretty hard to beat China! That was the most amazing trip ever! 😀 I really think I am supposed to go on this trip though. 🙂

  54. Oh my goodness!!! I assumed there were no China trips at first because it didn’t appear on the map on the home page. But this is where I truly have a passion to go, moreso than Australia. Are there any other determining factors as to which trip would be the best choice? Will the ways of serving be different?

  55. Beth! I’m really praying about this trip! I was wondering how full it is just to make sure I have plenty of time to keep praying! 🙂

  56. I don’t graduate high school until June 28 (I cant miss that) and this trip starts the 21st. Is it possible to come a little late?

    • Tina, The ONLY way to be late is for High School graduation and we will need a letter from the school stating the date and time. You will need to fly either that evening or early the next morning (depending on the time of the graduation).

  57. Elizabeth Weidknecht

    How long will there be openings.

    • Elizabeth, There will be openings as long as all the spots have not been filled. I have no way of knowing how fast a team will fill.

  58. will everybody going go through the airports together? are the spots filled? I am interested, but not sure if this trip is right for me. I love and believe in Him, but haven’t gone to church or read the bible in years. Am I still fit to go?

    • Jessica, We do not screen the kids and it sounds like this trip would be great for you, especially in helping your relationship with the Lord. Each team does travel as a team. There is still openings.

  59. Elizabeth Weidknecht

    Where is the mission termination site??

  60. Elizabeth Weidknecht

    Will it be cold or hot?

  61. How many days is the work project and how many days are the EV part?

  62. How long would we be spending in Butuan?

  63. Please consider coming to Baguio City and visit the 211 children of Lamut elementary students. We are closely working to Brgy. Lower Rock Quarry, the poorest and the most depressed village in Baguio City. You can stay here at Asia Pacific Theological Seminary during your mission trip.


  64. OK thanks! Cant wait! 😀

  65. Hi. The housing will be in dorms, but what about laundry? Will there be washing machines available or will we use our buckets??
