The first three days of the trip, participants will attend a children’s ministry training of trainers alongside local Filipinos. Nancy Fritz will teach the core curriculum of 1for50, an organization that aims to see one trained children’s leader for every 50 children around the world. After the training, the team and the Filipino children’s workers will together plan and organize an outreach to local children. Everyone will spend three days ministering together to the children of the Philippines.
