Tonight I leave on a big jet plane with 38 other people to go to the Philippines as part of the Enjoy Church Schoolies Tour. This is my second time to the Philippines this year, and I’m ecstatic and incredibly honoured!
Here’s an idea of what we’ll be doing and where we’ll be going while there:
– Sidewalk Sunday School
– Men’s/Women’s Prison
– Lifezone Youth (New Life Christian Center)
– Youth Conference
– Sunday church services
– Margaret Pashley’s Center for Change
– Graduation Dinner for the Schoolies
– Greenhills Market, Manila
– Mall of Asia, Manila
It’s seriously going to be amazing!!!!
I hope you enjoy reading these posts 🙂
And here are the Twitter accounts of other going people on the trip (not sure how much they’ll be tweeting, but it’s worth a peek at hey?)
Time to finish packing so I’ll write to you all soooooooooon!
“13) Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage. 14) Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. 15) If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. 16) Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand-shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5: 13-16
