Students from King's Chapel Tacloban joined us for a day of worship, Bible study, service, and fellowship during their SLAM Service Plunge at our community center, Tahanan, in the Philippines.
Our 2017 Biblical Studies seminar in the Philippines was held at the Tahanan Community Center in Tacloban, where teachers and development workers from G.O.D. International gave participants the tools they need for studying the Bible on their own.
The name of our community center here in Tacloban is “Tahanan,” which means “home” in Tagalog. Our hope with Tahanan is to create a space for people to gather where they can learn God’s Word, fellowship together, and have opportunities to serve. Over the last year, we have hosted bible studies, dinners, and facilitated times for local youth to serve in the community.
Dr. Mike Garner discusses the trip he will facilitate to the Philippines in mid-August. The trip's purpose will be to expose adults to a variety of systemic issues that exist in the Philippines and also address them on a biblical level.
Join our SLAM summer internship on a trip to the Philippines this summer of 2016. You will have the opportunity to bring hope and joy to a people who only a few years lost everything in the biggest storm to ever hit the Philippines.
This short video is about our friend Tano who works with Mercy in Action. Several men from our team have spent significant amounts of time working with Tano around the Mercy in Action properties both in Old Cabalan as well as in the mountains. Tano is a very generous and kind man whose family we have enjoyed getting to know, all nine of them!
