This mission trip is part of the Philippine “We Shall Return” commitment Bellaire United Methodist Church (“Bellaire UMC”). The “We Shall Return” commitment started in 2007 when Bellaire UMC sent two teams to the Philippines to work with the poorest of the poor. A team from our church has returned every year since to continue the work. This year our team of youth and young adults will be working with approximately 150 children in the squatter community of Malis, Philippines in Guiguinto, Bulacan and also participating in a youth leadership training weekend known as “G12.” We are expecting lives to be changed, including our own!

Malis is a community of approximately 5,000 families who have been relocated by the government from squatting along a government railroad right-of-way. The Malis community is very poor and Bethany UMC in the Philippines is working together with Bellaire UMC and Together in Hope in the United States to help the Malis community by offering nutritional support, Bible classes for children and adults, job development, and evangelistic outreach. We are feeding children and families in body, mind, and spirit, starting with the poorest of the poor.. The nutritional support program, known as “Jessica’s Table,” was actually started by youth from Bellaire UMC and Bethany UMC in 2009 with the help of Together in Hope, a 501(c )(3) public charity that oversees the holistic outreach work in Malis, as well as other locations in the Philippines. We are so excited to be a part of helping to continue this legacy of hope and invite you to participate with us.

How can you participate? You can support me and the other team members, if you are able, by helping with the cost of the trip. Each member of the team also needs to raise $1000.00 for the cost of the trip.

To support the youths travelling to Malis and to help them reach their goal of raising $1,000 each you can clink on their name above. You will then be brought to a new page where you can read about the young person you are supporting. Select Donate on the right hand side and follow the instructions.

All donations to Together in Hope are tax deductible and every cent raised will go to this cause. We thank you for your support and for helping our young adults to get to the Philippines so that they can make a difference.
