PHILIPPINES MISSION PT 1 🇵🇭 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ I am usually ecstatic to come home but this time I shed real tears as I said goodbye...well, see you later to my new Filipino family!
I had an amazing 2 weeks in The Philippine’s on Mission with the City Gates Team!
From #Coron to #Manila, being surrounded by beautiful friendly people, Tricycle & #Jeepney rides, #Lumpia, #Buko, #Pancit and #Adobo Chicken...my heart and belly are so full 🥰😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ I thank God for the opportunity to see the impact my local church, City Gates ILFORD, has made in the Philippine’s through The Academy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
And what a blessing it was to organise the first ever @GirlTalkSocial - PHILIPPINES EDITION! So pleased with the turn out and the opportunity to bring a word! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Thank you Jesus for the young girls who responded to the Gospel! 🙌🏾❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ City Gates Academy is literally changing peoples lives 😢 Children from the poorest community have an opportunity to get an education, excel in life and discover their God given gifts!
The smiles, laughter and constant joy these children display do not match their home environments. Visiting some of their homes in the #shanty towns proved to be heartbreaking and eye opening at the same time!
Thank you to the amazing team at the Academy, all the teachers & Junior Leaders and a huge shout out to Glenn and Auntie Nadette Isaguirre!
Beautiful Philippines, I will be back!
Salamat pamilya, mahal kita ❤️🇵🇭 #dalagangpilipina 😜 #Philippines #MissionTrip #CityGatesAcademy #Salamat #BoodleFight #DiscoverPhilippines
