Be a part of the relief efforts in the city of Tacloban, Philippines, which was utterly devastated by the recent Typhoon Haiyan. After completing training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you bus to the Orlando International Airport for a flight to Los Angeles. A connecting flight across the Pacific Ocean and the International Date Line takes you to Hong Kong, China, and then on to Cebu, Philippines. From there, an overnight ferry takes you across the Camotes Sea and into the Leyte Gulf to Tacloban, on the island of Leyte, the same city that General Douglas MacArthur fulfilled his “I shall return” promise to the Filipino people to end the Japanese occupation during World War II. Here you will begin rebuilding a church that is pastored by the brother of one of our Teen Missions in the Philippines staff members. Clearing debris, providing fresh water, and working with feeding programs will help to reconstruct a city laid waste by the fury of Typhoon Haiyan and bring hope to people who have lost everything. You will be staying in tents; bathing and laundry will be done using a bucket. At the end of your trip, you will return to Hong Kong for an overnight hotel stay. A ride on the Star Ferry across Hong Kong Harbor takes you to one of the world’s best Chinese night markets where you can shop for last-minute souvenirs.
