Greetings From Our Hosts

Greetings!  Are you thinking of coming to Cebu to join (for a short time) in our call?  We welcome you and look forward to your coming and sharing your gifts and your love with people we have come to love, but we must offer this WARNING:  You will not go back to the United States the same.  God will begin to widen your horizons toward a global perspective on life, poverty and Christianity.  We are praying for your arrival . . .

Invitation to the Philippines

    We would like to invite you to join us to this exciting trip to the Philippines. This trip provides students with heartwarming experiences centered around a tutoring center in a small village called Nanka. Here, students can see how people help each other to cope with extreme poverty. Students also visit social service agencies that deal with the issues of human trafficking, child welfare, poverty, substance abuse, and crime. Before returning to New York, we all stay overnight in Seoul, Korea,  a cosmopolitan center where the East meets the West.
