Advent 2018: The Philippines


Advent 2018: The Philippines

This year, in partnership with Convoy of Hope and the local church, we are raising money to help develop and sustain thriving communities in the Philippines! By focusing on agriculture, nutrition, education, and women’s empowerment opportunities throughout these islands, together we can make a difference! Here’s how:

  • Agriculture: With proper training and resources, a family’s income increases along with overall food production for the community.
  • Education & nutrition: When there is food at school, kids attend more regularly and have a better chance of retaining the information they receive. Children are crucial to thriving communities because they are the future leaders!
  • Women’s empowerment: By helping women create businesses, it increases productivity and generates income that goes directly back to families.

Top Three Ways You Can Help:

  • Learn: Look for upcoming opportunities to learn more about the Philippines, the land and the people throughout Advent.
  • Pray: Join us in praying for God’s guidance and direction for our brothers and sisters in the Philippines.
  • Give: Prayerfully give to this project. You can do so below, or via the offering buckets at weekend services.
