In the western Philippines there are many remote islands where there are very few believers. People feel like castaways: isolated and disconnected. Slow down for the summer, make friends, learn culture, share LIFE.

Use your possible interests in healthcare in reaching out to these rural communities... teaching Mother's classes, nutrition classes, basic healthcare checks... these would be a tremendous help in these rural areas. As you minister to their physical needs you are seeking to meet their spiritual needs also.

Your first stop will be a joint orientation with other Nehemiah Teams. Learning the skills needed to carry out your assignment as well as team building will fill these first few days. Your team will then fly to your final destination for the summer. Following your ministry time you will return to the US for a joint debrief... sharing all God has done over the summer!
